How to care for your Dendrobium. Got given this as anniversary gift from husband but am not sure how to care for it? New shoots have appeared at base. I pruned dead flowers off main stems after flowering but don't know whether it will flower again? Do nee shoots produce flowers? Any advice gratefully received.

Yes they do, in my experience. Mine was kept in west-facing bathroom, thrived on neglect, watered once a week, kept humid and ignored. I had 2 good sprays,each in succession for 4 years until I got fed up with the unsightliness of its growth and threw it out!

Strange you should say it as I just can’t make myself like this plant! Lol

I liked the flowers, just not the straggliness of it.
