Dendrobium glomeratum x lawesii Orchid – Growth habit and care tips

Today we look at e new blooming orchid in my collection, a new Dendrobium crush!
▼▼▼More info below!▼▼▼

Dendrobium glomeratum (sulawesiense) x lawesii is a primary hybrid between 2 species in the Calyptrochilus section. Learn more about this section here

It produces long canes which lose their leaves every once to two years. Flowers appear on the upper nodes of the canes and are formed in an inflorescence of 3 or more flowers.

This Orchid doesn’t need a winter rest, or a pause in watering or fertilizer in order to bloom. Furthermore it seems to not enjoy dryness at all, I was actually forced to change the setup to better suit my possibilities. Light should be bright shade and temperature intermediate.

This is not a fragrant orchid, but the bright pink – magenta flowers are a great pop of color which will brighten any grow room!
