DENDROBIUMS: Fertilizing Experiments prove it is beneficial for both growth and flowering; best results come from applying ratios of 3-3-2 or 5-5-2; for much detail refer to W9-75-(D. pompadour types) 0
DENDROBIUMS: Fertilizing During Rest Period Those that need a rest should be given neither water or fertilizer at that time. A81-122 0

DENDROBIUMS: Leaf Loss Many of them are deciduous each year in winter; it is caused mainly by day length and the need for less light and water. F86-13 0
DENDROBIUMS: Medias Those from Thailand do best in a sphagnum-bark mix, or pure sphagnum because of their need for moisture; others used are a very coarse bark and polystyrene mix, or, even in a fine river grit alone. OR82-12 0
