Yes it seems my Dendrobium is back to flowering as it should this year. I noted last year it was almost a month late in blooming, but this year it’s back to blooming in mid-March.

The first blooms appeared just last week and now there are a few flower heads waiting to open. It’s terrific to see these pretty pink blooms again.

    Thanks Tralamander. It’s been raining cats and dogs here lately. The wet season rolls on and on and on.
