365 days of orchids – day 42 – Dendrochilum javieriense


Our first Dendrochilum of our orchid year is a species from the Philippines, Dendrochilum javieriense. It produces masses of red flowers arranged along upright but arching spikes about 30cm long – a similar length to the dark green narrow leaves.

We find this species enjoys growing damp and well shaded in our warm Warm Asia section although its natural range suggests it could also grow cooler.
