Dendrobium bullenianum





Dendrobium bullenianum
is a beautiful species orchid endemic to the evergreen forests of Philippines and Vietnam at elevations around 1000 meters. I'm growing mine in a wood basket with sphagnum moss. It currently hangs under a Bald Cypress Taxodium distichum tree. It gets no fertilizer other than bird droppings, etc. I do give this plant daily watering except in winter as it needs a dry period to flower properly.
