    Default Not sure what type I have

    hello, I just recently bought a new orchid and I am not sure what type I have. The name on the card said: Den. Jaq Concert x compactum

    I have tried to look this up and I have come up empty handed. I was just wondering if anyone can help me figure out what type this is and some care instructions. Here is a picture of the orchid attached.

    Thank you

    Default Dendrobium Growers Information

    Hi! Hope this helps.

    Light Requirements:

    2000 - 2500 footcandles
    Very easy to grow, Dendrobiums enjoy abundant light and bloom profusely.

    Temperature:

    70 - 90 degrees F. daytime, 60 - 65 degrees F. night.
    Humidity:

    40 - 65 % relative humidity is ideal
    Notes:

    Dendrobiums can grow quite tall with flower sprays reaching 3 - 4 feet in length budding out near the crown. Nobile types require a cool rest period in winter to initiate budding but bloom all along the length of the cane.

    Cheers,
    BD
