Dendrobium Little Sweet Scent orchid seedling, 2.25-inch pot
CAUTION: No shipping into areas where the nightly lows are below 30 degrees.
Once these seedlings grow up, they will produce beautiful, lightly fragrant flowers if properly grown.
Den. Little Sweet Scent is Dendrobium anosmum x Dendrobium rhodopterygium.
These are spring bloomers and they grow well in dappled light -- maybe even a little morning sun. Allow to dry completely or almost completely before watering again. Cut back on water a bit in January and February, then expect to see the buds begin to develop, probably in the spring of 2022. Maybe 18 months from first blooming.
This plant is semi-deciduous, and will lose some or all of its leaves, so don't be surprised when they start to drop. The flowers will appear on the canes that recently lost their leaves. Do NOT cut the older canes as they are water storage for the plant.
These are not your run-of-the-mill grocery store phals. When they bloom they are truly spectacular and can have dozens of delightfully fragrant flowers. This is an orchid that is worth having in your collection. Fun to grow up.
These are freshly repotted in 3-inch pots. We always ship the largest. They stand 6 to 8 inches high, measured from the bottom of the pot. Be advised they can get rather large.
They do well mounted or in a hanging basket, so feel free to replant if you like.
