Introducing Dendrobium anosmum huttonii var. coerulea - The Enchanting Blue-Purple Orchid

Experience the mesmerizing beauty of Dendrobium anosmum huttonii var. coerulea, a captivating orchid variety boasting stunning blue-purple hues with a deep, alluring throat and a delicate blue-violet lip. This exquisite orchid is sure to steal the spotlight in any indoor garden or orchid collection.

Bloom Time and Duration: Dendrobium anosmum huttonii var. coerulea reaches its full bloom during the months of late March to April, delighting you with its magical colors for approximately four weeks. And with cooler conditions, you can extend the blooming period, allowing you to relish its beauty even longer. A well-cultivated pseudobulb holds the potential to produce an impressive display of over 100 flowers, creating a breathtaking floral spectacle.

Cultivating Tips: To encourage abundant blooming, this orchid species requires a cold winter period of rest. Notably, flowers emerge on both old and newly matured leafless canes, enhancing the charm of this unique orchid. During the growing cycle from April to October, provide heavy feeding and ample water to support healthy growth and vibrant blossoms.

Light and Environment: Dendrobium anosmum huttonii var. coerulea thrives in filtered sunlight, making it perfect for windowsills or well-lit spots with indirect light. However, it's crucial to avoid exposing the plant to direct midday sunlight unless the area has sufficient cloud cover or is located near mountains. A happy medium of light ensures optimal growth and blooming potential.

Foliage and Growth: Interestingly, these orchids showcase their best appearance with fully grown pseudobulbs when not in bloom. Just before the blooming season, the plant sheds its leaves, heralding the imminent floral display. After the blooming period, you'll witness new growth emerging from the base of the plant, producing keikies along the canes, further adding to its allure.

Ideal Conditions: These Dendrobium orchids typically come in a 3"–4" pot, featuring canes that range from 8" to 18" in length, while the flowers themselves measure between 3" to 4". The blooming occurs in the spring and releases a delightful raspberry scent that adds to the sensory experience. For optimal growth, maintain warm to intermediate temperatures, and ensure medium to bright, filtered light.

Potting and Watering: Dendrobium anosmum huttonii var. coerulea thrives in well-draining bark or moss, especially if the growing area tends to be dry. Keep the watering regimen moist during its active growth period, allowing the soil to become moderately dry between watering during the winter months. Maintaining humidity levels at 50%-80% and providing medium air circulation fosters a healthy environment for this charming orchid to flourish.

With its enchanting blue-purple hues, captivating fragrance, and abundant blossoms, Dendrobium anosmum huttonii var. coerulea is a must-have addition to any orchid lover's collection. Adorn your indoor space with this stunning orchid, and enjoy its beauty as it blooms into a vision of elegance and grace.
