Plant care

Put Dendrochilum cobbianum in a light spot, out of direct sunlight. The humidity of its surroundings should be quite high, around 80%. The ideal temperature for Dendrochilum cobbianum is around 28⁰C. Don't let the temperature drop below 15⁰C or rise above 35⁰C. Water the plant using rainwater or distilled water whenever the substrate has dried slightly. In practice this will be three to five times a week. Combined with a proper humidity, this helps prevent infections and disease. It is advisable to keep the orchid in a hanging pot to give the strands of flowers some space. Orchid-mix will be a suitable substrate, as long as water is able to drain from it. Orchid-mix and other components can be found in our ‘Plant Accessories’ section. This orchid needs little or no fertilization. Old flowers can be cut from the orchid.
