Dendrobium tetragonum A. Cunn. 1839


Dendrobium tetragonum A. Cunn. 1839 is an epiphytic growing orchid species, native to Australia (New South Wales and North Queensland).

The highly fragrant flowers of Dendrobium tetragonum get a width of about 5 cm and a length of about 15 cm. The very short inflorescences carry up to about 5 flowers and shouldn`t be removed as they may rebloom several times. Flowering period: late Winter - Spring. Dendrobium tetragonum requires cool to warm temperatures and moderate light. The orchid should be kept moist during the growth season and should be frequently fertilized. Watering should be restricted during the winter rest, until new shoots appear. Dendrobium tetragonum orchids are protected by CITES Appendix II (trade controlled to avoid use incompatible with species survival).
