Flower Care: Dendrobium Orchids

Dendrobium Orchids are one of the most popular types of flowers we offer! We sell massive amounts of Dendrobium Orchids for weddings and events and at certain times of the year we find many customers ordering Dendrobium Orchids as flowers for fundraisers!

Dendrobium Orchids are hardy and long-lasting wholesale flowers, but like other flowers, they do need to be cared for properly. Below are some simple care instructions for Dendrobium Orchids:

- When sold in bulk, Dendrobium Orchids are shipped with a water tube on each stem. Upon receipt of the flowers, remove the water tube, cut the stems about 1/2 inch up from the bottom and put them in clean water.

The stems of the Dendrobium Orchids need to be re-cut to encourage water uptake. Once the stems are cut and you have placed the flowers in water, you will see a dramatic improvement in their appearance as the blooms perk up and continue to open.

- If you have to transport the Dendrobium Orchids any great distance you can re-charge the water tubes. To do this, simply remove the water tube, submerge it in a bucket of water and shake the tube. As you do so, the tube will fill with water. Cut the stem about 1/2" up from the bottom and replace the water tube on the bottom of the stem.

- Re-cut the stems and change the water every 2 to 3 days or as needed.
