Plant care

Dendrobium chrysotoxum likes light, but should be kept out of direct sunlight. During winter this orchid should get slightly more light. The temperature should be around 20⁰C with slightly colder nights around 13⁰C. Make sure the temperature doesn't drop below 10⁰C or rise above 25⁰C. The preferred humidity is around 70%. Raising the humidity slightly at night stimulates the production of flowers. Water daily during spring and summer with rainwater or distilled water. Water less during autumn and even less during winter. This should be two times a week. Water should be able to drain from the substrate. Combined with a proper airflow you can prevent infections and disease. Orchid-mix is a suitable substrate, but it is also possible to attach the plant to a piece of bark. You can find this and other components in our ‘Plant Accessories’ section. Fertilize with caution. Old flowers can be cut from the plant.
