Plant care

Put Dendrochilum filiforme in a light spot, out of direct sunlight. The humidity should be quite high, around 80%. The ideal temperature for Dendrochilum filiforme is around 28⁰C. Don't let the temperature drop below 15⁰C or rise above 35⁰C. For the best results, water the plant using rainwater or distilled water whenever the substrate dries slightly. In practice this will be watering three to five times a week. Together with a proper humidity, this will help prevent infections and disease. Orchid-mix will be a suitable substrate. You can find this and other components in our ‘Plant Accessories’ section. Make sure moisture is able to drain from it. This orchid needs little or no fertilizer. Old flowers can be cut from the plant.
