Den. sulawesiense (now known as Den. glomeratum) is found in the Moluccas Islands in old forests at elevations of 3,900 feet and higher as a small sized, cool growing epiphyte with pendant canes carrying many, deciduous, leaves that have dark spots on the leaf sheaths and blooms in the spring and summer on a short, 3 to 10 flowered inflorescence with flowers that sparkle in the light.


 These amazing plants have been in our collection for over 15 years. We grow them outdoors in late spring under shade and bring them into the greenhouse for the winter months. Hummingbirds are attracted to the flowers! These plants come from seed pods that were pollinated by the hummingbirds that visit us from Mexico every year from late spring through summer.


This warm-growing species is easy to grow. Best grown mounted or in a hanging basket to accommodate the pendant-growing canes. We grow them best in a pot with sphagnum moss since our summers are dry. These plants do best in bright light and high humidity. We give them Cattleya light levels. Water and fertilize regularly during active growth from late spring to autumn. The medium should be constantly moist, but not soggy. At the end of autumn, stop fertilization and the amount of water should be gradually reduced. In winter, Den. sulawesiense should dry between watering, but they cannot stay dry for too long. It is normal for leaves to turn yellow and fall off. The attractive growths resemble miniature bamboo and can rebloom from old canes. The long-lasting flowers have diamond-dusted texture, which lasts for months. Can be grown on a bright windowsill or under lights. A very rewarding species. Highly recommended.
