The Dendrobium Nobile Orchid does not need large pots, since the root system is not very large and does not extend in an uncontrolled way. The soil must never be particularly compact, as it would risk literally suffocating the delicate roots.
The orchid mix proposed by GC will go very well, very ventilated but at the same time maintains a high humidity The Dendrobium Nobile orchid loves temperatures between 18/29 ° C during the day and never below 10 ° C at night. Light is very important for this Dendrobium species.
Not only during the summer, but Dendrobium Nobile needs a lot of light throughout the year. It is advisable to place the plant in a very bright environment: it is difficult to get this beautiful orchid accustomed to direct sunlight (although not impossible), which could damage it, but it will be enough to place it behind a large window that captures the sunlight. sun in the early hours of the day or in the hours before sunset.
To see the plant bloom and keep it always strong it is necessary to abound with watering, but with criteria.
During the hottest periods (spring and summer) the waterings must be abundant, in order to allow the plant to accumulate the reserves necessary to overcome a drier winter. We emphasize the detail of the watering done with criteria: the humidity must be constant and high, but it is imperative to avoid dangerous stagnation of water. At the end of the summer it will be possible to relax and decrease watering, almost to the point of suspending it. It is the period in which the plant enters the period of vegetative rest and during which it will be enough to ensure it has a good exposure to light and a temperature never lower than 10 ° C.
It is precisely the autumn period that is the most important: the Dendrobium Nobile with lower temperatures and with less water will be able to flower in the correct way.
By following these tips it will be possible to watch from the front row a show that is difficult to describe in mere words. The buds will increase in volume throughout the autumn and winter period (in which it is advisable to suspend watering) welcoming the spring with flowers of rare beauty.
