    Default Drymoda siamensis

    Hi,

    I don't have any experience with Drymoda siamensis and almost no information is found on web pages. If someone has growing instruction I'd be very very happy.
    Thanks in advance,
    b.

    im not familiar with this as well but doing a search from google this is what i've found.
    One of the tiniest orchids of the world -although its proportions are not the only feature that makes it attractive for cultivation :its flowers also assume unusual shapes . In the wild ,the species grows in the company of deciduous Dendrobium orchids and its development during the year also resembles that of deciduous Dendrobia. Its small , flat ,rounded pseudobulbs reach the size of 0.4 in /1 cm and, after the end of the vegetation period,shed all of their tiny lineated leaves . Flowers appear before the onset of the wet season . They grow individually on short spikes ,have a pronouncced lip and are light green with a russet marking . Grow them as you would deciduous Dendrobium orchids -provide them with a well- ventilated ,semi-shady environment with sufficient watering and fertilization in the summer,and a longish cool and dry dormancy in the winter.D.siamensis blooms between February and March and is known to grow in Burma ,Laos and Thailand.
    hope this helps.

    Drymoda? What a nice name for an orchid, and the description seems very interesting; I would like to see a picture of it

    Thank you so much for the comprehensive information: I'm sending an image of my tiny Drymoda siamensis, you can see tiny disk-like pseudobulbs - just starting to lose leaves.
    Drymoda needs now "a longish cool and dry dormancy" during the winter. I'm wondering now how low these temperatures may be: till 10 °C (50°F), lower, higher.....
    There are several members from growing area Drymoda siamensis, so I do hope someone would know what does really need in winter time.
