Introducing Dendrochilum uncatum, a mesmerizing orchid species that encapsulates the exotic beauty of the Philippines and Taiwan. With its compact stature and striking features, this small-sized wonder adds an enchanting touch to any orchid collection.

Native to elevations ranging from 500 to 2300 meters, Dendrochilum uncatum thrives as an epiphyte or lithophyte, making it adaptable to a variety of growing conditions. Its conical pseudobulbs, densely clustered and carrying two oblong leaves, create a captivating visual display year-round. Come fall and winter, prepare to be captivated as slender, arcuate inflorescences emerge from new growth, adorned with a plethora of yellow fragrant flowers arranged in two rows.

To cultivate this botanical gem, provide a nurturing environment reminiscent of its natural habitat. Ideal conditions include a cool greenhouse setting with winter minimum nights around 52°F (11°C) and daytime temperatures in the mid-70s°F (24°C). However, intermediate temperatures with slightly higher minimums are also suitable, ranging from 55 to 60°F (13 to 16°C).

For potted specimens, a well-draining epiphytic mix is paramount. Consider a blend of 80% washed and sifted fine fir bark with 20% medium perlite to mimic its natural substrate. Avoid over-potting, as Dendrochilum uncatum thrives best when snug in its container.

This is a near blooming size imported bare root orchid division; newly repotted in a 4" pot; about 1 to 3 years to bloom; Grown from seed; Limited!

Named for the distinctive sickle-shaped arms attached to its column, Dendrochilum uncatum beckons with its unique allure and graceful demeanor. Embrace the allure of the Philippines and Taiwan with this botanical treasure, and let its delicate beauty elevate your orchid collection to new heights.
