Description & Details

 The species Dendrobium (abbreviated Den.) capituliflorum (also called “White Bottle-Brush Orchid”) is found in Papua New Guinea and the Solomon Islands. It is a small sized, cool to hot growing epiphyte on trunks and branches of trees in lowland savannahs, plantations, coastal forests and rainforests and also a lithophyte found on rocky outcroppings in grasslands at elevations up to 5,900 feet. Reaching 4-10 inches in height, the spindle to cylindrical-shaped pseudobulbs carry many dark to gray green leaves on the upper side, sometimes with velvety purple on the underside. Dense ball-like clusters of small flowers arise from the nodes closer to the middle and base of mature leaf and leafless canes in winter through mid-spring. Note, it is semideciduous so it is normal for leaves to turn yellow and fall off mature canes in the fall. It is a sequential bloomer, will rebloom from the old canes for several years. The flowers last for several months. It is temperature tolerant, capable of withstanding hot and cool temperatures, from 45°F up to 95°F, favoring warm. Can be grown in a pot or mounted with more frequent watering.
