Yes mine came mounted on a small stick. Actually I got two species dends from them and now both have bloomed!
And then you tell me this one could be trouble
So I don't know WHAT to think anymore!
I also got Neobathiea filicornu from them but it hasn't bloomed
nor has Paraphaleonopsis serpentilingua, but it is the tiniest little thing you've ever seen.
Anyway, the D. tetro. has very smallish roots so it does seem like it could be trouble growing it in my bedroom area. I tend to think of small rooted plants as needing/preferring pot culture when growing inside. But maybe this dend requires to be totally dried out between waterings? If so, it should do ok unless it just dies for no reason.
Its a cool plant for a non-Ang
