Introducing the Dendrobium amabile - a breathtaking orchid species renowned for its delicate, light pink flowers and sweet fragrance that captivates any space it graces. With its unique characteristics and charming blooms, cultivating the Dendrobium amabile is a delightful experience for both seasoned enthusiasts and beginners alike.

Native to regions where the summer sun bathes the landscape, the Dendrobium amabile thrives in warm to cool conditions, making it adaptable to various climates. Its striking flowers, which emerge between late May and mid-June, illuminate any environment with their radiant hues and intoxicating aroma. The round pink lips, adorned with a yellow throat, add a touch of elegance to its pendulous clusters of blooms.

Distinguished by its large pseudobulbs and rounded stems, the Dendrobium amabile stands apart from its counterparts like the Dendrobium farmeri. Its foliage, thick and dark blue, provides a year-round spectacle, though it may become less leafy during winter months. Despite its preference for moist environments, this species requires well-draining soil to prevent waterlogged roots, ensuring its longevity and vitality.

To cultivate the Dendrobium amabile successfully, providing ample sunlight is essential. Placing the plant in a location where it receives 70-80% sunlight fosters robust growth and abundant flowering. However, caution must be exercised during erratic weather, as excessive rainfall can lead to rot, particularly in newly grafted specimens.

Throughout the growing season, maintaining a balanced watering schedule is crucial. While the plant thrives on moisture, allowing the roots to breathe is imperative to prevent water-related issues. Regularly monitoring the soil's moisture level and adjusting watering accordingly ensures optimal conditions for growth and bloom production.

As the flowering season approaches, a gradual reduction in watering coupled with weekly fertilizer applications encourages prolific flowering. Exposure to abundant sunlight during this period promotes bud development, ensuring a spectacular display of blossoms. Post-flowering, increased water and fertilizer support the growth of new stems, preparing the plant for its next flowering cycle.

This is a blooming size imported bare root orchid; newly repotted in a 6" pot; about 1 to 2 years to bloom; Grown from seed; Limited!

With its resilience and enchanting beauty, the Dendrobium amabile is a delightful addition to any orchid collection. Whether adorning indoor spaces or embellishing outdoor gardens, this captivating species promises to evoke awe and admiration with its radiant blooms and graceful presence. Cultivate the Dendrobium amabile, and indulge in the splendor of nature's finest masterpiece.
