Dendrobium growth

I got these two dendrobiums in February from a member of my local orchid society. He had the parent plant for twenty years and it was huge and throwing off keikis left an right. His instructions were to keep the roots moist and I should be good to go. Constantly moist roots meant a sphagmum moss medium to help hold the moisture in. I cut slits in the bottom of plastic cups for drainage and stuck them in small mason jars.

Yesterday, when I went to water them, I noticed that one of them was starting to grow a new cane!
