Dendrobium charpaense

This Dendrobium species belongs to a group know as the 'Nigro-Hirsute' type. The name refers to the black hairs on the canes. Dendrobiums prefer an abundance of light, but not direct sun. A lightly shaded south window is best. It is always best to water orchids in the morning so the plant can dry out before night.
