Vase Life Details: 1 to 2 weeks on the stem, but depends on the variety, and the use and care the blooms receive. We highly recommend schedule the Dendrobium Orchids for delivery 3 days prior to their event.
Availability: Dendrobium Orchids are available year-round, most come from tropical regions of Southeast Asia. But at times certain varieties of Dendrobium Orchids may not be available due to weather or market conditions.

General Comments: -Dendrobium Orchids are shipped with water tubes on the stems. We recommend to remove the water tube, cut the stem about 1/2" up from the bottom, and place the orchids in your arrangements in water. If you have to transport the Dendrobium Orchids any great distance you can re-charge the water tubes. To do this, simply remove the water tube, submerge it in a bucket of water and shake the tube. As you do so, the tube will re-fill with water. Cut the stem about 1/2" up from the bottom and repl

Florist & Wholesaler Information

  • Dendrobium Orchids are named for the greek words "Dendros"                ( meaning tree) and "Bios" ( meaning life) due to the fact that they are naturally epiphetic and can grow without soil ( or on trees!)
  • Dendrobiums, like most orchids, should be stored at 15 to 17 degrees celsius for optimal vase life.
  • The vast majority of Dendrobium shipped to the North American market are grown in Thailand but they are also produced in other tropical regions such as Singapore, Hawaii and Costa Rica.
  • White and Green cultivars of Dendrobium are genetically the weakest of Dendro varieties and are subject to poor quality and bud yellowing during the Thai rainy season from May to September. Most dark Purple and Pink cultivars are genetically stronger and rarely show signs of quality problems.

Grading Information

  • Dendrobiums are generally graded by stem length and are largely available in 3 grades.
  • LL ( 65 cm+) , L ( 55 cm +) and M ( 45cm +)
  • Usually shipped sleeved, with water picks and bunched by 10 stems.

Grower and Breeder Information

  • For the long trip to North America...boxes should be shipped to the airport in refrigerated transport to avoid heat stress problems and loss of vase life.
