- Nature’s Artistry: The Dendrobium Aphyllum orchid embodies the artistry of nature, with its intricate blooms and delicate details reflecting the beauty of the natural world.
- Lighting: In native settings, Dendrobiums prefer to grow in partial sunlight, but indoors, they will likely require the brightest, south-facing window to bloom. The appearance of many tiny offshoot plants (known as keikis, pronounced as “kay-keys”) on relatively young canes can mean the plant is not recieving enough light. On the other hand appearance of yellow leaves can mean that it is receiving too much light.
- Watering: During the growing season, Dendrobiums like moisture but should never be allowed to sit in saturated medium as this can lead to root rot. To determine if watering is required, simply stick your finger in the medium. If it feels wet, wait for the medium to dry out a bit more. During the winter months, watering frequency can be reduced further, but never let the medium dry out completely. Watering with distilled water or rainwater is the best idea, as normal tap water can cause salts and minerals to build up in the medium.
- Temperature and Humidity: Dendrobiums prefer warmer temperatures, preferrably between 70°F and 85°F (21°C to 29°C), with a nightime drop of arounf 10 degrees. They might be able to withstand slightly cooler nighttime temperatures, but prolonged exposure to cold is not ideal. However, few short weeks of slightly lower temperatures in the winter may be required to promote blooming in the upcoming spring. Orchids appreciate humidity levels around 50-70% (with a minimum at 45%), so consider using a humidity tray or a humidifier.
- Potting: Dendrobiums grow well in any well-draining container filled with commercial potting mix, which is usually a bark-based medium. Repotting is usually needed every two to three years and is best done in spring. Repotting is necessary when the plant outgrows the pot or breaks down the medium. While repotting, slide the plant out, rinse off the root ball gently and plant in the new pot with fresh bark-based potting mix, spreading the roots out while filling the pot.
