Noob, help! ID little Dendrobiums
Question Noob, help! ID little Dendrobiums

Hello! So I went to an orchid place for selfie thingy (I did not enjoy the "selfie part" :')) and there was this orchid bazaar and bought 2 little very cheap orchid. They were advertise as Dendrobium but I cant get any info what species they are. The seller said it was the same species that was in front of them (they had white, purple, and yellow/orange) I am also very inexperienced with orchids I'm only a wee lil teenager. I was impulsive but I'm determined to take care of them. I did some research. They said its a local species from Indonesia (I'm from Indonesia) one was labeled 2MA/2NT (I think)and one is labeled Y E N.

(The 2MA/2NT one. Its about 20 cm)

(the YEN one. Also about 20cm)

An ID is quite impossible - flowers would have help to narrow the choices a bit. (Any chance you could visit the place again and get some photos of the flowers?) Definitely a Dendrobium... but since you live in the area - and climate- where the plant comes from, I think you could just repot it (perhaps in small bark rather than the sphagnum that it is in now) . If you can use a terracotta pot rather than plastic, it will be helpful to have that extra weight on the bottom - these tend to be top-heavy. Water it well (water running out of the pot), let it dry for a few days, and repeat. You live in a warm climate, so it should quite happy outside if you can manage that. Bright, indirect light is best.

Default Ahh alright thank you!

Well if an ID is impossible well at least I know they are ok here. The entry was cheap but going there on the trip wasnt so it will be a while till I get any photos of them so I will take care of them like the "standard" i guess. Thank you soo much for the tips! I will use it. My grandma is an Orchid enthusiast so she has the medium and stuff. Again thank you
