Dendrobium Mini Snowflake x rhodostictum (3.5” pot blooming size)
This new cross makes a very compact and bushy evergreen plant that produces loads of long lasting flowers. Each growth can flower four to six times once it is mature, so in just a couple years plants will be literally covered in cute white flowers with tinges of violet in the lip. The Latouria Dendrobiums make easy house plants and can take a range of temperature and light levels. They do beautifully under LED lights as well. The most important factor is to provide regular water and allow good drainage. We recommend watering 2 or 3 times per week for best results. These are beautiful, full plants nearly filling 3.5” pots and will flower well this year and even more profusely as the number of older growths increases. Do not be too anxious to repot these plants into larger pots, they bloom best when somewhat rootbound. When repotting, wait until the newest growths are beginning to produce new roots so that plants establish quickly into their new container. This is generally true for all orchids but we mention it here because many will be tempted to immediately repot these nice full plants.
