    You sure there is a Dend by that name? I have a Coelogyne with that species name and there is a Diuris species with that name. No Dendrobium. I even checked the Royal Horticultural Society for you and these are the only two orchids with that species name

    I have one of these. That is Dendrobium fimbriatum var. oculatum. It's an old favourite that has been around for a long time and is still a very common orchid in many collections. It can be purchased from most orchid nurseries and makes a fine specimen plant in a tropical garden or heated greenhouse after just a few years. It's not a good plant for growing indoors as it can grow canes that are over six feet (1.8m) long. It likes a cool, dry rest in winter with lots of sunlight to promote flowering in spring and then a more shaded, warm and wet growing season with plenty of fertiliser during spring and summer. Each cane of D. fimbriatum will flower several times over a number of years (unlike those from nobile-type dendrobiums, which only flower once), so don't cut the old, leafless canes until they start to shrivel. You can grow them in pots with an epiphytic mix, in which case you can keep the canes upright with a few stakes to keep the plant tidy and manageable, and to reduce the amount of horizontal space it needs. The other option is to grow it in a hanging basket or on a mount to allow the canes to hang, which is what they would naturally do in the wild .... but the basket or mount would need to be quite large and, because of the length of the canes, they would need to hang quite high. If you live in a tropical country you can also naturalise the plant and mount it directly onto a large tree in your garden, where it would prefer a deciduous tree to an evergreen one. I hope that's the info you need.
