Dendrobium Orchid Flowers
Author: adminNo Comments
The genus Dendrobium is a writer’s nightmare! There is a multitude of species with a variety of heights, slower shapes, and colors, and flowering times which range from early spring to late winter.
Some can thrive in a winter temperature as low as 50 degrees F (10 degrees C) whereas others need 60 degrees F (16 degrees C) or more! Finally, your plant is probably evergreen but it may lose its leaves after flowering. As a general rule keep the plant in a bright spot away from direct sunlight and let it rest after flowering, but the best advice is to make sure you buy a named variety with instructions. The most popular ones are the D. nobile varieties with white or pink flowers in the spring. Keep cool and dry in the winter.
