    There are many orchids available now, but this is a rather beautiful form with white, lightly fragrant nodding flowers and a greenish central eye, standing out from tall cane-like stems usually from January through to June. With large deep green, glossy oval leaves this orchid is a stunner. Please note that the pot in the photograph is not supplied with the plant (which is sent out in a simple nursery pot). They do however make excellent potted plants, and if you wish to pot yours up, we do have a wide range of pots on our website to choose from.

  • Home care: Place this orchid in a bright spot but not in direct sun in a moderately warm room when in flower. Let the compost dry out slightly on the surface before watering with tepid soft water, or rain water, allowing any excess water to drain away and then remove - it's important that the plant is not left sitting in water. Make sure the plants have good air circulation around the crown, mist regularly with water and feed with orchid fertiliser throughout the growing season.

    Once it has flowered you can trim off the spent flowers but leave the 'cane' stems as they may support some more flowers in the following years. Over time some of the older 'canes' may become a bit woody and shrivelled - these can be cut off at the base as long as there are three new healthy canes with leaves. To flower in subsequent years the plant will need cool temperatures and less water in the autumn and early winter for the buds to develop.

    Once the buds have formed, however, you can increase the watering and move it back to a warmer room to enjoy the floral display.

Notes on Dendrobium Spring Dream ('Apollon') (PBR)

"The name Dendrobium comes from the Greek word 'dendron' meaning ‘tree’ and 'bios' meaning ‘life’. Many Dendrobium species are known for being good at removing toluene (the most important ingredient in thinner) and xylene (a solvent for resins and fats) from the air. They are therefore viewed as natural air conditioners."

What do I do with the plant now it's producing white roots at flower levels thank you


There is no need to do anything really as this is a natural part of the plants life cycle, and it will actually help the plant take up water and nutrients.


All the flowers on my denrobium have wilted,what do I do next?


You can gently pick off the faded flowers to neaten the plant up, and then carry on following the growing instructions in the 'Garden Care' section on the website.


Why are some of the leaves turning brown and dropping off?


Hello, It is quite normal for these orchids to lose their older, lower leaves, but if this quite significant, then it is probably caused by a cultural problem. It's difficult to pinpoint exactly what might be the cause, but it could be too much or too little water, or fertiliser or light.

Which house plant where?

Which house plants you choose should depend on the environment you intend to keep them in, the space available, how much time you can spend preening them as well as your personal preference. For me, foliage house plants are the ticket, because they provid
