I'd say the ones on the canes were buds. The stems can produce keikis but I think you've got at least a few flowers coming. The ones from the base are new canes.

That type of dendrobium main flowering is in the late fall to winter. It sometimes will flower once again in the summer, albiet not as nicely. Most of these need a cold period in the fall to bloom. That is what pushes them to bloom. It only needs an hour or two of cool tempts. each night for a month the bloom very nicely. The temp. during those couple of hours needs to be about 55 degrees if I recall correctly. I agree, two buds on that plant that will flower.

I agree, the two top nubs look like flower buds, the Yamamoto dendrobiums require less water & cold to form flower buds , too much water, warm & fertilizer during winter time will produce keikis .
Do not over water it until the flower buds become more obvious
