Dendrobium Orchid Resources

Dendrobium is an extremely varied genus with many sections and species. While care is generally similar from variety to variety, there are specific differences that warrant attention – “hard cane” versus “soft cane”, whether winter rest is required in order to induce inflorescence, etc. Dendrobium Phalaenopsis (Sec. Phalaenanthe) are the most widely spread amongst collectors. When learning to care for your specific orchid, it’s best to start by figuring out what section it belongs to, then go from there. Orchid Roots and Bluenanta are both excellent resources for learning more about an orchid’s background.
