I have two Den. bracteosum (the other parent of the Den. Hibiki) and I keep mine well watered and fertilized most of the year. I don’t let them dry out spring-fall and only let them get slightly dry in the winter. These will lose their leaves though on old canes. Mine seem to hold on to their leaves for a season or two, at least.


And Steve, that color came out beautiful on your laevifolium!

My Hibiki is on a southeast window with same light my Iwanagaara was in when it bloomed, no direct sun. Is this too much light? And you all are saying to give it lots of water. I thought dendrobiums liked to dry out. I am so confused

The Dendrobium genus is huge and broken up into sections: different sections, different care. These ones fall under the section Pedilonum which are mostly from mossy intermediate-cool areas that get high amounts of rain. A few are from lower elevations that are still very steamy with high rainfall. Hence keeping these types fairly moist for most of the year. I only let mine go dry out in the winter but I still water them shorty after, no prolonged dry rest or anything. They are still epiphytes so they still need air around the roots, but I can’t let these go even as close to being dry as I would for something like my Den Phals or even my Spatulata types.

Exactly. This is a giant genus with species occupying many different niches.

Epiweb consists of non-woven plastic threads randomly filling 3-dimensional space. It is flexible and reversibly deformable, like a sponge, but has less material and more air. If you can't find it, look for evaporative cooler pads formed from plastic threads rather than wood excelsior. I would guess there aren't many evaporative cooler stores in Indiana.

I have Hibiki. I water it every day. It is in sphagnum moss. I never let it dry out-- just drain. Right now its flowers are about to open.

I have another like it a canaliculatum hybrid that is doing great when watered every single day. Over time, the canes plumped up on that one. I thought it was toast at one time, but now it has 4-5 new growths starting and a thick pseudobulb.

I would definitely water any of the New Guinea Dendrobiums daily.

Hey! I got lost in St. Charles Parish today!
And then kept up my winning streak by getting lost in Lafourche Parish right after that
I had no intention of taking an extended tour of the back roads of Louisiana on my way to Lafayette this morning, but at least it’s very pretty out that way

This is exactly what I use for one of my two Den bracteosum and, out of the two, the one in epiweb is doing far better (the other is in leca with a bit of sphag for top dressing and it’s ok, but not great like the other one) I think Kelley’s Korner still carries this product.

Like others I water both of these daily, as well

Steve, you were going to post a picture if your set up. For now mine is tented in moss in a clay pot, watered daily. It recently pushed a set of not so great looking leaves.

Ah yes, thanks for the reminder! I'll get a pic when I get home.
