I purchased two new orchids today, Dimorphichus lowii (2 diff colored flowers on same inflorescence) & Dendrobium macrophylla. I'm curious if anyone has experience growing either of these species?
The Dimorphicus lowii is only about 6" tall - what is blooming size on one of these? I've seen one mounted on a piece of cork will they grow faster that way? Mine is just in NZ LFS in a 2" pot but I like mounted plants so if it's better I'll put it on a mount.
The Dendrobium macrophylla is flowering as well as simultaneously putting out new growth and has pretty much packed it's 8 or 10" pot. When the flowering ceases there will still be active new growth. I'm wondering when can I repot it without too much interruption to the plant?
