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.

IN SPIKE: 
An orchid plant may arrive in bud, in bloom or in various stages of in-spike development. A plant in-spike can take anywhere from 1 week to 2 months before flowers begin to open. We are one of the few nurseries to ship orchids in spike or bloom. Most of the time our carefully wrapped orchids in-spike or in-bloom arrive in good condition. However, due to conditions beyond our control, we cannot guarantee that all flower spikes, flowers, or buds will arrive in perfect condition.

NOT IN-SPIKE:
An orchid will arrive while it is not currently spiking or blooming due to being either before or after its bloom season. Check the "Bloom Season" information on the product page to see when the plant is expected to spike and flower. Many orchid lovers and hobbyists prefer plants that are not in-spike in order to watch the first stages of the spike emerging all the way through to the reward of the bloom! If you are sending a plant as a gift, you generally want to send the plant in-spike unless the gift receiver would prefer otherwise.
