Dendrobium X delicatum plant
The Dendrobium delicatum strong light is required for full potential.
In low light levels this orchid will not bloom, a sign of adequate light is a red tinge to the leaves.
If the foliage is very dark green, it means the orchid isn’t receiving enough light. Keep in an eastern, or partially shaded southern exposure for adequate light levels.
Keep Temperature 40º F to 85º F
This orchid can withstand hot temperatures up to even 104º F with good air ventilation, partial shade and good watering.
In the winter time though, the Dendrobium delicatum needs an extreme cool down in order to initiate flower spikes.
If kept in temperatures over 50º F in the winter time, blooming might be poor.
Keep away from freezing conditions though, and start to increase temperatures as the flower spikes start to grow.
Keep evenly moist and withhold watering in the winter time
summer and fall, water abundantly and keep evenly moist for good growth.
As the temperatures drop and growths are mature, reduce watering drastically and resume watering after the flower spikes start to develop.
Use a coarse medium that provides very good drainage and air flow around the roots.
your Humidity between 40%-80%
Keep this plant in a more humid environment during hot temperatures, but ensure a good air ventilation as well.
Misting should be performed only in the morning, to avoid standing water during night time.
