Dendrobium Care

Water

Water in the morning when media is dry. Ensure there is moisture in media and keep them from drying up.
Note: The watering schedule for a Den-Nobile greatly depends on the season and its growth cycle. 

Light

Ensure good dose of indirect sunlight. Ideally the early morning light is advisable.

Temperature

Warm growing orchids with temperature between 25°C to 38°C suitable for growth.
During fall, limited exposure to lower night time temperatures encourage growth of spikes. Higher temperature will encourage faster growth.
Note: Prolong temperature drop or rise may stunt the growth and buds may fall off.

Humidity

Maintain humidity level of 60% - 80%. Regular watering in plants helps maintain the humidity and encourage growth. Good air circulation is a must. 

Fertilizer

Weekly fertilizing required during active growth. In winter months, plant to be fertilized twice a month.

Note: Never fertilize an orchid that is completely dry, because this can cause major damage to the roots.
 

Potting

Dendrobium should be repotted in a small pot with course mix which can hold moisture and can maintain humidity. Media should be as such so that water drains out properly and provide proper aeration.
