They are characterized by a long blooming time: from the time the first flower bud opens, the floral ‘sprays’ will remain in bloom for about 2 months. If a Dendrobium is kept in a bright warm spot, it may even produce an extra seasonal bloom of flowers!

Better-Gro® Dendrobium Mix is carefully blended to cater to the distinct moisture needs of Dendrobiums.
