Default Dendrobium subuliferum

Dendrobium subuliferum... an easy miniature that has grown well potted in a small unglazed terracotta pot using sphagnum moss as a medium (grown in a terrarium under artificial light with an approximate photo-period of around 10 hours, temperatures ranging from 74-86F, high humidity levels, watered weekly and lightly fertilized every other week).











A photo for some size perspective of this plant.

Beautiful! Thinking of getting one... what kind of light are you using? What temps are you keeping it at?

Thank-you! I value your comment. Wish I had a better camera (been using an inexpensive 9-year old point & shoot Kodak).

Thanks! Grown under DIY LED lighting. Temps usually hover around 82-84F during the day (with lights on) and get around 74ish at night (with lights off).

If interested, here is the fixture I'm using. Consists of six Cree CXA1304 cobs (5000K) and ten supplemental diodes (460nm blue, 660nm deep red, and 700-750nm far red) driven soft with 300ma (about 27 watts). A bit overkill and overbuilt for a small growing enclosure, but I can easily adjust intensity with driver amperage or by lowering/raising the light fixture. Cost for this build was approx. $45 (diodes, driver, and heat sink). Sorry about the time stamp being on the photo. Took several 'before the hurricane' pictures of the house/yard and forgot to turn the time stamp feature off.

Been really pleased with this plant. Besides being an easy, low maintenance miniature, it has been blooming since late August. Flowers seem to last for a month + before withering away and falling off, then new buds on other canes begin opening up.
