    Default Dendrobium crumenatum 'thunderstorm'

    Has anyone ever grown this one (not in a greenhouse)? This one has peaked my interest and I didn't know if it was persnickety or not......

    Never seen a named one. They grow on my plumeria tree happily. They are quite hardy and thrive on benign neglect.

    I have 3 hanging baskets of these orchids growing well outside in near full sun-I just fertilize mine once a week.-they need a cool period to induce them to flower soon after. Unfortunately the flowers only last 1 day but are highly fragrant but well worth having them.

    fairly hardy dendrobium and thrives on neglect once it settles down. blooms 10 days after there is a rain and is called a pigeon orchid and is very fragrant. better to grow them outside as it would be difficult provide a rain effect to trigger blooming

    Thanks everyone, based on your tropical locations and answers, it may not be a windowsill option...
