These will produce beautiful, lightly fragrant flowers. They are spring bloomers, and these are in bud now.
Den. Little Sweet Scent is Dendrobium anosmum x Dendrobium rhodopterygium.
These 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 along the canes.
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 lots of delightfully fragrant flowers. This is an orchid that is worth having in your collection.
Most of these have three canes, and we always ship the largest. They stand between 15 and 20 inches high. They can get rather large.
They do well mounted or in a hanging basket, so feel free to replant if you like, but wait for the flowers to fade first.
The picture shows the kind of flowers to expect, and one of the plants in our greenhouse. We have a bunch of these and we'll pick out a nice one for you. We include free growing instructions.
