Dendrobium falcorostrum – Beech Orchid

A lovely highly perfumed orchid, with bright white flowers marked with red. Likes a smallish pot in an open potting mix of bark, and perlite, pebbles and volcanic rock can also be added. They can also be attached to a piece of tree fern. Likes bright light. Feed regularly for best flowering, using either a slow release food or liquid feeding every few weeks, but rest over winter with no food and less water. Naturally grows on Antractic Beech trees in cool highland forest in mid to northern NSW and south Queensland.
