Introducing the enchanting Dendrobium cretaceum, a mesmerizing orchid species renowned for its exquisite creamy-white flowers reminiscent of delicate white dragonflies. With a fluffy white lip adorned with charming wavy and curled edges, accented by captivating purple veins, this botanical marvel captures attention with a single glance.

Native to the majestic Himalayan region of India, Dendrobium cretaceum boasts long pendant, ridged pseudobulbs that can extend up to an impressive 30 cm in length. Emitting a fragrant aroma, its flowers, ranging from 3 to 5 cm in diameter, add an aura of elegance to any space.

Found amidst the mountainous landscapes of Southeast Asia, these cool to warm growing plants stand at a mature height of 6-12 inches. In the spring, delicate buds emerge from nodes opposite the leaves, unfolding into stunning ivory-white blooms with a striking lip adorned with bifurcated red and purple stripes, reminiscent of nature's finest artwork.

Radiating the enchanting scent of roses, these blossoms grace their surroundings for 3-6 weeks, offering a delightful sensory experience. As a deciduous species, the leaves on the newest growths shed before or during the flowering period, giving way to robust canes that undergo rejuvenation in the winter months.

To nurture your Dendrobium cretaceum, ensure a regimen of care that aligns with its natural habitat. During periods of leaflessness and dormancy, maintain slightly drier conditions at the roots, allowing for optimal growth and blooming potential.

This is a blooming size in a 4" pot or mounted, about 1 to 2 years to bloom, grown from seed, limited!

Elevate your botanical collection with the captivating allure of Dendrobium cretaceum, an orchid species that captivates hearts and inspires admiration with its timeless beauty and grace.
