Dendrobium shixingense mounted FS
species - Guangdong, China
Delicate 2.5-2.75" flowers are borne toward the end of leafed or leafless, pendant canes during Winter-Spring months. The foliage has a light purplish cast to it.
Den. shixingense likes dappled or semi-bright light and warmish temperatures (65-85 degrees night to day). Water and fertilize regularly with a liquid or water soluble fertilizer (see ours in the "Supplies" section) keeping in mind that plants attached to cork or other media may need water more frequently than those in pots. Due to the pendant nature of the plants, they are not suitable for pot culture.
