Oddly the specific name means 'not fragrant', quite a misnomer because the flowers are very fragrant. Flowers are 3-4" across and most often occur on leafless canes. This suggests that Dendrobium anosmum needs a cool, dry winter rest from regular watering and feeding and that is exactly the case. from about late October, until new growths start to appear in early Spring. Plants kept in growth mode will still grow, but won't bloom or bloom well.
The plants like bright light and warm nights (65 degrees and up) while in growth mode and abundant water and regular fertilizer Spring - Fall. The plants we're offering have canes about 12" long.
