The "Dendrobium" is part of the orchid family and are found all over the world, with different species originating from different locales and climates.
The name ‘Dendrobium’ is derived from the Ancient Greek words for a tree, ‘Dendron’, and life, ‘Bios’, and refers to the fact that these orchids are often found growing on tree branches in their natural habitat.
- Loves bright indirect sunlight. Thrives best near a south-facing window.
- In warmer months, move to a shaded area during the day to avoid their leaves becoming scorched.
- During active growth of the orchid in the summer, water thoroughly once the potting media is almost dry. Use your finger to monitor the dryness of the potting media, to get an idea of when it needs to be watered.
- Water your dendrobium orchid in the morning if possible. Increased heat, light, and ventilation during the day allows excess water to evaporate, which is particularly important to reduce the risk of fungal disease.
