Original:Dendrobium phalaenopsis are native to South East Asia and Australia, and are so called as their flowers resemble those of the Phalaenopsis, or moth orchid. Usually these plants perform best when grown at a temperature of between 58 deg. F at night to 85 deg. F during the day, but that is not to say they NEED such a high daytime temperature – but the warmer the daytime temperature the faster the plant will grow, and the more flowering will occur. They will often benefit from being outdoors during the warm Summer months, in good light, but out of direct noon and afternoon sunlight. ‘Pastel Pink’ is a hybrid with pink flowers in a unique shape and shade. This variety forms many of buds that will flower up to two months, usually in mid to late Summer. New:Dendrobium species are mostly epiphytic, occasionally lithophytic. Epiphytic orchids use other plants, rocks or fallen trees for anchorage. They have modified aerial roots that can sometimes be a few meters long. Lithophytes are plants that grow in or on rocks. Lithophytes feed off nutrients from rain water and nearby decaying plants, including their own dead tissue.These orchids grow throughout summer, but become dormant during winter. They come to life again in the spring when there is a rapid growth of new roots. They are popular orchids and over the years, many hybrids have become available.
