Dendrochilum filiforme – 365 days of orchids – day 1319

There are many signs of autumn around – i harvested plums yesterday – and our dendrochilums are a highpoint of autumn in the greenhouse and his species is already in flower.

Dendrochilum filiformne is one of our smaller Dendrochilum species and in common with most of the genus it produces a pendant spike of delicate little fragrant flowers.

The species is native to the Philippines where it grows from 660-2250m altitude. We find that our plant does best cool and damp in our Cool Americas section (yes we know the Philippines isn’t in the Americas) as it enjoys the conditions we provide for our Masdevallias.
