The essential Dendrobium! A must-have orchid for Dendrobium lovers. Dendrobium loddigesii has long-lasting, fragrant flowers with fimbriated lips that erupt en masse and bury the small plants in a carpet of lavender and ochre. These are very tough plants, found throughout China, Laos and Vietnam where they occupy trees and rocks in exposed areas that become cool or cold for part of the year. As such, they do require a cooler dry rest during winter to initiate blooming. Keeping them on the dry side will reward the grower with a profusion of flowers in early spring, which appear primarily on the leafless, mature canes from the previous year.
During the growing season, Dendrobium loddigesii grows best in bright conditions, with heavy watering, high humidity, and good air movement. In short order, they become large specimens. The plants on offer are very well-grown and robust-looking, brimming over their baskets with numerous canes.
