Dendrobium moschatum

Dendrobium moschatum - Flower photo by Richard LindbergDendrobium moschatum - Plant photo by Richard LindbergI have been watching the mounted Dendrobium moschatum for signs of new growth all summer. I want to take it off the mount. It has not grown well and it takes up a lot of space.

Dendrobium moschatum grows in Southeast Asia at low altitudes. It is cool to hot growing, needs bright light and is fragrant. It blooms spring into summer on leafless canes. Flowers last only a few days.

It was in a pot when I got it in 2007. It was bigger then. The plant and I will both be happier with it in a pot. I can keep the canes all going in the same direction.
