    Red face Growing Dendrobiums Semi-hydroponically.

    Hello everyone. I have purchased my first three Dendrobiums yesterday. Two of them were on their way out of bloom and the third was fully bloomed. Got them cheap too.

    Has anyone had any experience growing Dendrobiums semi hydroponically? Also, how well do they grow in a coarse bark mix

    Also, is there anything special that I need to know about Dendrobiums? I researched and found some conflicting information. For example, one source says that they like two hours of indirect light, and another source says that they like bright light in front of a window but not direct sunlight. One source says they require heavy watering, and another says that like to breath.

    Any information you have would be helpful.

    By the way, two of them are Dendrobium Burana Fancy and Thongchai Gold.

    The other I am not quite sure. The tag may still be down in the medium.

    Thanks for your time and comments everyone.

    I've never tried a Dendrobium in SH either. I've got a few Oncidium hybrids in SH and it works well. Perhaps I try a Dendrobium as well (but one that doesn't need a winter rest).

    Thank you both for answering. I put both of my Dendrobiums in SH, so I'll see how that works. I'm not sure if mine need winter rest or not. Guess I will have to see.
