DENDROBIUM CARE INFO:

Potting mix: Fine bark with perlite or mounted with moss. Repot in Spring once root bound. Do not allow bark to become waterlogged.

Light: Medium-bright indirect light. Bright North is recommended to protect from heat. Shaded West is ok too. Not picky

Water: Water frequently in hot months when media reaches dry. Prefers to be kept well-watered. Decrease in winter for a light rest. 

Temp: Intermediate (55F min night, 85F max day). 

Humidity: 50-80%, tolerant of lower humidity with adequate watering.

Fertilizing: 1/2-1/4 strength urea-free fertilizer, every other watering as new roots and leaves emerge. Decrease fertilizing in late fall and omit or use very sparingly in winter. General rule: begin in Spring, stop in Winter.
