Introducing the vibrant and resilient Dendrobium friedericksianum, also known as Friederick's Dendrobium. Originating from the lush landscapes of Thailand, Malaysia, and Cambodia, this exquisite orchid species is a sight to behold with its stunning yellow, waxy flowers and unique growth habits.

As a deciduous dendrobium, Dendrobium friedericksianum follows a fascinating seasonal cycle. During the spring through fall months, it flourishes, gracing its surroundings with bright, long-lasting blossoms. Come winter, it gracefully sheds its leaves, preparing for a rejuvenating rest before bursting into bloom once again in the springtime.

The plant's slender stems can reach up to 50 cm in height, adorned with clusters of charming flowers measuring 5 cm in diameter. With its natural habitat nestled high atop tall trees, Dendrobium friedericksianum thrives in environments with ample light, warmth, and humidity.

Cultivating this botanical treasure requires attention to its specific needs:

Light: Provide a light level of 20000-30000 lux to ensure optimal growth and flowering.

Temperature: Mimic its native climate with average summer temperatures ranging from 31°C during the day to 24°C at night. As winter sets in, maintain a daytime temperature of 31-33°C and nighttime temperatures of 19-21°C.

Humidity: Keep humidity levels high, around 85% in late spring to autumn, gradually decreasing to 70-75% in winter.

Substrate and Repotting: Opt for a loose, fast-draining substrate if grown in pots, or mount on tree ferns or cork for an authentic epiphytic experience. Repot as needed, especially when new roots emerge.

Watering: During the summer months, maintain constant moisture, watering daily as needed. As autumn approaches, gradually reduce watering to prepare for the winter rest period.

Fertilizer: Feed weekly or bi-weekly with a balanced fertilizer, adjusting the dosage to 1/4-1/2 strength throughout the year.

Rest Period: In winter, limit watering to allow the plant to experience a dry period. Morning fogging between waterings can provide additional moisture, especially during sunny weather. Reduce or eliminate fertilization during this rest period.

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

With proper care and attention to its unique requirements, Dendrobium friedericksianum will reward you with its exquisite blooms and bring a touch of tropical elegance to any space. Embrace the beauty of Friederick's Dendrobium and experience the joy of nurturing this remarkable orchid species.
