A World Full of Beauty
Between their beautiful blooming stems and their amazing scents, orchids are true show stoppers. I chose to showcase purple colored blossoms for a very simple reason; It's my favorite color and these are true beauties.
I remember being a young girl and receiving a beautiful arrangement (in my favorite color!). I was in the hospital and feeling very blue about being trapped indoors. My older brother came to visit and brought me the prettiest thing I'd seen in a while.
The stunning buds not only brightened my day and my room. They changed my entire attitude and encouraged me to get well faster, simply be being there. It amazes me how something so small has the ability to make a difference.
Dendrobium Orchid Care
Unlike many other orchids, dendrobiums can easily tolerate the rays of the morning sun. By afternoon, they prefer to be shaded. The temperature during the day ranges between 70-85Â° F. Upon nightfall, 65-75Â° F is preferable. However, the plant does best with an even temp throughout the day and night. Air that is too chilly can cause blossoming buds to drop.
You should water your new plant about once a week. In between watering, allow it to dry out a bit. The easiest way to know if it's time to water is to check the soil with your finger. If you feel moisture, it's not ready to be watered. Do not allow the plant to stand in water.
While your orchid is blooming, it is not necessary to fertilize it. During summer months add one quarter with every other watering and completely stop during fall.
