    Default Dendrobium chrysotoxum watering

    I purchased a Den chrysotoxum, and it arrived on 01/07/2008. Once I received it, I refrained from watering it except for once, because I knew it could be a Den. that requires a winter rest.

    Well, I eventually figured out that it does, and my resources say that it should be given a dry resting period in winter and spring and bright light conditions. During the growing season it requires copious watering.

    I am just wondering when I should start to water it. At the end of spring, mid-spring, when?

    Thanks
