Product Description

Dendrobium Yaya Victoria is an orchid hybrid originated by E.Zayas-Bazan in 2004. It is a cross of Den. Sonia x Den. Jane Wilson. May not be in spike/bloom when you receive them depending on the season. Dendrobiums are among the most commonly grown orchids in the home. Like most other cultivated orchids, dendrobiums are epiphytes, or air plants. They have well-developed water-storage organs (pseudobulbs), often called "canes" for their upright, leafy appearance. They should be potted in porous, free-draining media. There are many different types of dendrobiums available to the specialist grower. Light: Sufficient light is important for healthy growth and flower production. Provide Bright light, to 50 percent sun. In the home, an east, west or lightly shaded south window. In a greenhouse, about 30 to 50 percent of full sun. Under lights, four 40 watt incandescent bulbs directly over plants. Plants should be naturally erect, without need of (much) stalking, and of a medium olive-green color. Temperature: Mature plants need a temperature of 60 F to 90 F. Temperatures up to 95 to 100 F are beneficial if humidity and air circulation are increased. Low temperatures (below 50 F) may cause leaf drop. Water: Keep evenly moist while in active growth. Allow to dry between waterings after growth is mature (indicated by terminal leaf). Humidity: Dendrobiums need 50 to 60 percent. In the home, place on trays over moistened pebbles. In greenhouse, use a humidifier if conditions are too dry. Fertilizer: Should be provided on a regular basis during the active growing period. The exact fertilizer you use will depend on the mix in which your plant is growing. A good general rule is to apply a balanced (10-10-10, 12-12-12, or similar ratio) fertilizer "weakly, weekly" during the period of active growth. That is, fertilize every week at one quarter to one half of the recommended dilution. Potting: Should be done every two to three years before mix loses consistency (breaks down). Pot firmly in medium, giving aeration and ample drainage, allowing enough room for two years' growth. Dendrobiums grow best in pots small for the size of the plant. They are blooming size plants, but may not be in bloom when you receive them depending on the season. The flowers are native to Southeast Asia, Japan, Taiwan, Indonesia, China, the Philippines and Australia. Their name derives from the Greek word kymbe, meaning “boat,” and refers to the blooms’ hollowed lips. The color of bloom may vary. Blooming size but may not be in bloom.
