    Thumbs up New Dendrobium

    I just couldn't pass on buying this one today! This is my first Dendrobium. I have no information whatsoever on how to care for this one.

    Of course, it came without a name tag so I dont know what it is. Any thought?
    I bought it for such a cheap price. You wouldnt believe it!

    Thanks
    Fadi

    In Uk, this type of orchid would be grown in the warm section of the orchid house (minimum temperature 16 degrees plus in winter. I would classify it as a phalaenopsis type. It would tend to grow rapidly & flower from midsummer onwards & thus would be subject to usual winter dryness (summer feeding) but plently of moisture & air movement.

    I believe this orchid is called "edible"....JK LOL!! Well, actually, to be honest, the blooms are edible...of most orchids....I love going to Asian restaurants and these are the orchids they usually put on the plate I think I rather enjoy growing them as opposed to eating them, however - they taste like any other bland veggie!! haha..

    Most hard cane dendrobium hybrids (and several species) do not need a winter rest if they are kept warm (over 70F).
    Below 60F they start to shut down and go dormant - they may even drop leaves from younger canes.
    This is what gives some growers the impression that their hard cane dendrobiums have an annual cycle like a cattleya alliance or oncidinae type orchid. But in fact they are inadvertently inducing annual dormancy by exposing it to cool/cold conditions in winter.

    In the Philippines, we grew hard cane dendrobiums year-round with no interruptions in growth. They just sprout new canes when they please and a mature plant can be in bloom almost year round because the spikes emerged at different times.
