    Default Den. Griffithianum care

    Hi guys.

    what is the typical care for a den. griffithianum. Do they have to go dry all winter like those other dendrobiums?

    thanxs Gin!.

    i got the plant by mistake in april, and its bloomed twice already after losing several leaves due to sunburn. I was thinking of giving it away if its too difficult to care.

    Same as densiflorum? Those should be given the winter rest, or at least a greatly reduced watering so that they are dried out between waterings.
