Moderate water is required during the growing season. Care should be taken to keep water off the leaves of new growths.
This species has lavender flowers that have two burgundy spots on either side of the lip towards the inner base. An albino form with pure white flowers are available. The long slender pseudobulbs are said to grow to 3 meters (nearly 10 feet) in length. However, in cultivation, especially when it is mounted, the pseudobulbs often do not even reach three feet. The most common type of Dendrobium anosmum is also the most floriferous, it is capable of producing more than sixty flowers on a single cane
Its botanical name anosmum actually means without scent, but Dendrobium anosmum is one of the orchids species with a powerful fragrance.
These plants love high light and benefit from some hours of full sun, some can even stand full midday sun without complaint, however exposing the base of the canes to full sun is deathly for these plants.
A warm growing Dendrobium from lowland Papua New Guinea. These are very well-grown plants that fill up the pots with many stiff canes, and newly emerging growth.
It requires high humidity to grow well and is mostly grown mounted or in baskets. The fine roots must be allowed to dry out between waterings or they will rot, but the plants should never be allowed to dry too much.
As with most Dendrobiums, these plants require very bright diffused light. They are deciduous and lose all their leaves during the winter months.
Dendrobium constrictum is a compact plant with dense umbels of white flowers. Sepals greenish white, lip green except for the white apex.
Found in the Bismark Islands and in Papua New Guinea just below the mist forests on mossy trees at elevations around 700 meters as a small sized, warm growing epiphyte.
Dendrobium densiflorum grows as an epiphyte or sometimes lithophyte in intermediate elevation monsoon forests. Coming from monsoon areas, it requires a dry rest in the winter. The inflorescences arch gracefully downwards, each carrying a large number of flowers, and when open, looking like a bunch of grapes.
The most commonly cultivated form of Dendrobium fimbriatum, variety oculatum is distinguished by its maroon-blotched floral lip. An epiphyte, it typically grows on tree trunks and rock ledges in the wild.
Fringed dendrobium requires partial shade, mild summers, and relatively cool, dry winters.
Dendrobium formosum has a very large and stately flower that is pure white with contrasting yellow-orange markings in the center of the lip.
Dendrobium 'Dawn Maree' (Den. formosum x Den. cruentum)
Dendrobium 'Frosty Dawn' (Den. 'Dawn Maree' x Den. 'Lime Frost')
Dendrobium Humming Butterfly is a beautiful hybrid Dendrobium Suriyon Stripe x Dendrobium Ekapol 'Butterfly'.
These are classified as dwarf dendrobiums. They do not grow into tall canes but have short spindle-shaped pseudobulbs bearing thick, leathery leaves.
Dendrobium lindleyi definitely require a change in the cultural requirements at various times of the year and become dormant in the fall through winter months. Spring to Fall give adequate amounts of water, fertilizer and light. Fall to winter give cooler temperatures (especially at night), water sparingly to prevent them from drying out, keep on dry side.
Dendrobium nobile differentiates itself from the other orchid species by the cluster of flowers which forms opposite the axil of each leaf. The colour ranges from entirely white through yellow and orange to red and purple and combinations of these colours.
This orchid can tolerate a lot of light, but do not place it in direct sun.
