Dendrochilum formosanum *Golden Chain Orchid*

SKU:10406/35

Be the first to review this product First to review this product

An exciting miniature species from Taiwan and the Philippines.  Known as one of the 'Golden Chain Orchids'  tiny and delicate golden-green blooms covered semi-pendant stems that grow from the center of the new growths. Dendrochilum formosanum has thin, soft foliage growing from small, round pseudobulbs.  Plants grow in clumps of bulbs and should remain so they mature.  (Do not divide when young). We have found Dendrochilums like this make great companions for many intermediate growing Pleurothallids, Draculas and some Coelogynes.


Growing Suggestions:  Plants of Dendrochilum formosanum  should be grown in moderate or medium light levels to avoid burning the thin foliage.  Always keep active air-flow around the plant as this will cool the foliage, and prevent leaf spotting.  Repotting should only be done as needed, but keeping in mind this species needs snug containers. Use a free-draining media appropriate for frequent waterings. Growing in hanging baskets can help with both of these issues while adding airflow. Plants grow quickly but rarely reach more than 8"-10" in height when mature. You will usually see multiple new leads each growing season.


We have very Limited Supplies of flowering size plants in 3.5" pots.  The photo above shows a specimen size plant in full bloom.  While our offered plants will take a few years to reach this potential, they ARE flowering size now and expected to bloom in the coming month as spikes emerge from the new growths.  


 These will go quickly and we ask that you Limit to One Per Customer.
