Hello,
I have a mounted Dendrobium wenzelii recently all leaves have dried and turned brown. Is there still hope of it coming back? Haven't found much onlone about their care.

I don't know anything about this species but there are Dens that lose their leaves for winter. But it kind of sounds like that is kind of early for that to happen. Hopefully someone will help you out! Good luck!

Thanks I hope so too. Roots still seem to have some life to them...so I'll water carefully and see if any new growth happens.

I don't have any pics before it got crispy...it's mounted on some porous stone lava rock I believe. I only grow inside my apt is never over 80. It is in a north west facing window. I water well once a week and lightly mid week

I have tried unsuccessfully to grow these. For what it's worth, I'm told they grow in intermediate conditions and like to stay moist.

Not to sure what it is, although I do grow a few of these and have found these guys to be real water hogs.

The browning could also be a spider mites and their damage. It would be a good time of year for them, nice and hot just the way they like it. I'm in battle with these little freaks now

Are you seeing new growth at all - how do the roots look to you??

Thanks for all the input. No new growth...kept it in my bathroom for a few weeks to see if the extra moisture would help. However, still no new roots or leaves. I think I have to throw in the towel on this one...

This is a lowland Philippine species. I suspect that it has not been getting enough water - it rains all the time in its natural habitat. It may survive if potted and kept more moist.
