Dendrobium farmeri is a beautiful species orchid, native to the montane forests of the Himalayas and Southeast Asia. Similar to the standard farmeri, this Dendrobium produces cascading spikes of elegant flowers, though unlike its sibling, the flowers on this pink form of farmeri are mauve tinged, with buttercup-yellow centres. The flowering period is from spring to early summer.
Requires bright, filtered light outdoors, sheltered from any direct sun. Being an epiphytic species, Dendrobium can either be mounted on your choice of raft, or potted in a well-draining orchid pot, using small-medium grade orchid bark. If mounted, Dendrobium will require increased humidity and very frequent watering to maintain adequate hydration. Potted Dendrobium require frequent and thorough watering, allowing water to run completely through the pot. Fertilise fortnightly with an orchid specific fertiliser throughout spring and summer.
