First of all; it seems your specimen is way to small to flower. Depending on variety, Dendrobium speciosum may form pseudobulbs measuring between 40-100 cm. Hence your plant needs at least one or two more growth cycles to become blooming size. Apart from this, it is important to know, D. speciosum needs a prolonged cool and dry winter rest in order to flower, with only very occasional waterings. You should indeed give your plant maximum light, both during active growth and winter rest.
Hoping this helps,
