Orchid 'Dendrobium dichaeoides'

Orchid312
Specifications
Dendrobium dichaeoides
At first glance Dendrobium dichaeoides doesn't look much like an orchid. But the small leaves and atypical flowers are actually a sight to behold. Some will have an orange lip, contrasting beautifully with the pink colour of the rest of the flower. Dendrobium dichaeoides is found in nature in the tropical forests on the island of New Guinea.

Product info

Dendrobium dichaeoides grows on New Guinea at an altitude between 1.000 and 2.000 meters. This fast growing orchid makes its home hanging from trees. So at home it's best to keep it on a piece of bark with moss or in a hanging pot. The branches of an adult Dendrobium dichaeoides reach between 12 to 15 centimetre. Every branch will hold a cluster of 4 to 10 flowers. The flowers are white and pink, without a very visible lip. The leaves will be around 10 centimetre and are oval with a pointy tip.

Plant care

The environment of Dendrobium dichaeoides should be around 12⁰C in the winter and shouldn't reach over 25⁰C in the summer. It's very important not to allow the substrate to dry out; this can prove fatal for Dendrobium dichaeoides. This is also why the humidity should be around 80% and even slightly above that at night. Water this orchid less in the winter months. Use rainwater or distilled water to water Dendrobium dichaeoides. Place the orchid in a semi-light spot, being very careful to avoid direct sunlight. A proper airflow will help prevent infections and disease. Orchid-mix and sphagnum will be a suitable substrate. You can find this and other components in our ‘Plant Accessories’ section.
