Dendrobium Nestor S/A 'April' x rhodopteryglum S/A '#4' 4in
This cross is a deciduous Dendrobium that drops its leaves before blooming from the mature canes. It has white petals and a pink fuzzy lip and a sweet fragrance. Winter/Spring bloomer, a blooming size plant that appreciates lots of light.
As a general rule, Dendrobiums generally enjoy warmer, wetter Spring-Fall and cooler, drier Winters. Deciduous and semi-deciduous Dendrobiums require a dry rest period in Fall-Winter. Once new growth begins emerging in the Spring, resume regular watering and fertiizing.
