Dendrochilum magnum, the "Golden Chain Orchid" 4" FLOWERING SIZE
species - Philippines
This is one of the larger, more spectacular Dendrochilums. It's listed as a cool grower, but cool to intermediate temperatures will do (55-80, night to day is ideal). Flower stems emerge from the developing new growth and they are up now! The wiry spikes will rise up to about the top of the leaves and then arch over falling nearly to the level of the pot and will produce a chain-like cascade of fragrant, golden flowers.
Plants are about 18" tall (not including the pot) and can quickly become awesome specimen plants. Grow these in diffused or dappled light, watering to keep the roots "moist-ish". Fertilize regularly (see ours in the "Supplies" section.
Picture at the lower right shows a specimen plants. Plants we are selling are shown on the lower left.
