    Default Dendrochilum glumceum culture

    Once again I won the raffle at my society meeting tonight, yippee me!

    I received a Dendrochilum glumaceum.

    I find mixed messages as to culture, warm growing cool growing,bright light, not so...

    Please tell me what is the proper culture of this orchid.

    i know a place that lists it as 'somewhat temperature tolerant' although it is from the philippines, it grows at high elevations, so gets some warm and some cool seasonal weather. i could probably grow it outside here, in a sheltered area, like my balcony. they do not mention light at all though, and i must say i am almost completely unfamiliar with this genera. i would try it with my oncidiums? intermediate, and not worry about winter warmth so much.

    Dendrochilums like very bright light and intermediate to warm temps, no temps below 60. They prefer to dry slightly between waterings. During the spring and summer months the plants can be kept moist, and during the fall and winter they should be allowed to dry between waterings.

    Have you grown these personally Ron?

    Knowing that my culture is a windowsill, and my outside temperatures rarely stay above 70 degrees in the summer. Do you believe I can grow this successfully? I had not heard of this orchid before last night.

    I think that if you can keep the humidity up for it, it could be grown in a window. It is not a super big species, like cobianum but not small either, like wenzelii. I grew 6 or 7 different species of Dendrochilum but never tried them at home but kept them in the greenhouse.

    My humidity is usually over 60%, an with a bit of misting I can shoot it up to 75%. (Peeling the lichen of my brow
