Dendrobium orchid plant is indoor flowering plant and blooms blue flowers. However, there are more than 100 varieties of Orchid, based on flower colour and leaves’ size & shape. It grows well in diffused sunlight or shady area. Its flowers stay on plants for longer time. Hence, its flowers are used to make beautiful flowers bouquets. This plant should not be planted in garden soil. It prefers to grow in soil less media. The unique shape of inflorescence attract butterflies and children too.
Water, Sunlight & Humidity: Orchid likes to grow on moist media. Water with high salinity may harm its life and flowering. The plant blooms round the year, if atmospheric temperature does not increase more than 370 C. Lower atmospheric humidity level (less than 40 %) will also adversely affect health of Orchid. In view of this, our customers of states (UP, Bihar, Delhi & other states with hot climatic conditions), should never purchase Orchid during summer season. Even if you have already purchased Orchid, you should keep your Orchid at such space where diffused sunlight and ventilated air flow by desert cooler is available. Desert coolers are considered highly useful to make suitable climate for plants. On contrary, do not keep the Orchid in air conditioned room because AC reduces atmospheric moisture by continuous absorption. Regular misting during summer season will be must. Rainy season is most suitable for Orchid growth.
If you will keep this in direct sunlight (or outdoor), It may die. This plant should be grown in net pot to ensure better drainage and aeration. We should not wait for drying up of soil for watering. This plant likes to grow on moist potting medium.
