Miniature Orchid Dendrobium carronii


Dendrobium carronii Lavarack & P.J. Cribb 1983, commonly called The Pink Tea Tree Orchid, is an epiphytic growing, miniature orchid species, native to Australia (Queensland) and the Papua Island New Guinea.

The miniature orchid grows preferably on Melaleuca trees (Tea trees). Inflorescences get a length up to about 20 cm and carry up to 10 - 12 flowers. The fragrant and long-lasting flowers get a size of just about 2 cm. Flowering period: Spring. Dendrobium carronii orchids are protected by CITES Appendix II (trade controlled to avoid use incompatible with species survival). The tropical miniature orchid requires a warm - hot, humid climate and medium light. Dendrobium carronii orchids should be kept humid, but not wet and should be regularly fertilized during growth season to induce blooming. Watering and fertilizing should be restricted during the winter rest until new growth appears.
