Dendrobium 6in (LC)
- Light: Bright indirect (orchids need 10 to 15 hours of bright but indirect sunlight a day. Protect them from any direct sun as this will scorch the leaves)
- Soil: Coarse grade bark or coconut chips with some medium size pieces of charcoal. Good aeration of the roots is crucial.
- Water: Water your orchids in the morning so that the leaves are dry before night. How often to water depends on the potting media used, the type of pot (plastic or clay), and the size of the pot. Dendrobiums like to be in small pots and are usually much taller than the pot is wide. Because they are usually large plants in relatively small pots, watering twice a week is about average. They like to be almost dry before re-watering. When watering, place the plant in the sink and use tepid water. Do not use salt-softened or distilled water. Let the water run through the plant for a minute or so. Be sure to let the plant drain completely.
- Humidity: High. We recommend giving it a daily mist, placing it on a pebble tray filled with water, or keeping it close to a humidifier.
- Toxic: No
