This was a lovely, lovely Dendobium orchid that I had for a few years
Because it is no more.
And there is even a little story here which I will bore you with for a few minutes.
Many, many years ago my mum got some orchid that was about to end up in a bin. She took it home and watered once in a while.
And the orchid was so happy that it grew... and grew... multiple canes, multiple flowers and a bunch or little keikies (it's the orchid babies).
I took one of those kaikies home with me, since they they were big enough to get own pots. My one also grew nicely and bloomed a few times as you can see. Lovely white flowers with intense dark purple center.
It looked happy.
For a while.
And then I have no idea what happened but every new cane was growing smaller and smaller. That is a clear sign that orchid is sick or grows in the wrong conditions. The thing is, that I didn't change anything. And so a healthy big bush turned was gone within two years.
What a shame...
By the way. My mum still has hers :)
