Plants in great dixter tropical garden
In the garden of the British Ambassador of the Philippines in the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, England, there is a dendrobium called ‘Sawad’.
This plant is a fast growing, easy maintenance plant, with a wonderful scent that smells exactly like chocolate. This plant is a member of the Dendrobium family and grows up to 10’ tall.
‘Sawad’ is a member of the Dendrobium genus and is in the family Orchidaceae, which is one of the largest families of flowering plants, along with Poaceae, Asteraceae, Cyperaceae, Salicaceae and Arecaceae, and is one of the most speciose of the flowering plants.
What is Dendrobium?
The dendrobium, or dendrobium, as it is more commonly called, is a genus of about 80 species of perennial tropical epiphytes. It is also known as the trumpet orchid or the great Dendrobium. A dendrobium is a member of the family Orchidaceae.
The dendrobium is characterised by the presence of long filaments (spikes) on the tepals (floral organs), with a large, central, trumpet-shaped labellum. These are the organs that attract the insects that pollinate the plant, as well as the butterflies. The dendrobium is also a great tropical orchid.
The species of dendrobium that we have in our gardens are native to Southeast Asia, Australia, and southern China. This includes Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore, Papua New Guinea, New Caledonia, Queensland, the Cook Islands, and Vanuatu.
The genus dendrobium is found in tropical climates, and is one of the most widespread genera of epiphytes in the wild. It grows in a variety of wet and moist environments, and also in a broad range of pH. Dendrobiums grow best in well-drained conditions that are slightly acidic in nature. It will tolerate some shade, but if you have this in your garden, try to create more, especially in the cooler months of the year. These orchids are tolerant of heavy moisture in the soil, and they can live in poor soils, but they grow best in conditions that are between 30 and 50 percent water. Dendrobium is a relatively easy orchid to grow.
Growth of the Dendrobium
Depending on the species and variety, the dendrobium can grow to 3-4 metres in height, and it also has a large bulbous base. The bulbs (or offsets) grow at a fairly fast rate in the early years, and the plant can begin to flower within two to three years of its arrival.
The leaves are large and usually grow in clumps, with each stem being an erect, fleshy green that can reach 25 centimetres in length. These leaves have a wide, oblong, ovate to elliptic shape and a slightly twisted leaf-stem. The leaf-stem and roots give the orchid an upright, erect appearance.
Flowers of Dendrobium
Many people consider dendrobiums to be stunning flowers, and they are certainly very colourful. The dendrobium is a species of orchid that has many individual forms, with a multitude of shades. Each species and variety has its own colour palette, and many are quite unique. The flowers of the dendrobium tend to be a pale blue, as well as purple and blue. In rare instances the flowers can also have a yellow tint.
The flowers of the dendrobium are all terminal, having no petals. Instead of petals, the petals of a dendrobium are called 'tepals', and these tepals have a similar shape and texture to a fingernail, but with a very smooth surface. The tepals of the dendrobium tend to be large and fleshy, and they fall like a pendulum from the main part of the orchid, known as the calyx.
This has the effect of creating an interesting shape for the dendrobium as it blooms. Dendrobium calycinum has the best blooms of any dendrobium, which can also be used as cut flowers. Dendrobium nobile is a very popular plant because of the beautiful bluish-purple buds that are a result of the buds being born with a white centre. Dendrobium can be a little bit tricky to grow, but if you are patient, the result will be spectacular.
Flowers of Dendrobium can also have the 'eye' characteristic. If you look at the base of a dendrobium flower, you will see a small circle of stamens and, beneath these stamens, another oval shaped structure. This is called an 'eye', and it gives the flower its unusual shape, as the 'eye' is not visible from outside the flower. The eye makes the flower especially beautiful.
The Dendrobium is a relatively common name for any member of the order Arecales. There are many species, of which dendrobium nobile is a prominent member, that has large white and blue flowers.
The Dendrobium nobile, commonly known as the 'blue eye' dendrobium, is an easy to grow indoor plant and is a very attractive plant when it grows. It requires good lighting and watering to keep it growing.
Some dendrobiums come from the order Arecales, a class of plant that is sometimes called the 'palm family'. Arecales are known for their long stems that grow from underground. They have a large, flat leaf structure on the upper portion of the stem and roots. In this way they are different to other plants in that the flowering parts do not come from the stems. The leaves and stems that grow from the Arecales contain a sticky substance that help to keep the plant growing. The flower clusters do not need to be pollinated in order to produce good looking blooms.
Dendrobium nobile are easy to grow and will bloom for quite some time. They are good for cut flowers, and they are a good indoor plant as they require less watering than the majority of indoor plants.
Dendrobium nobile have been in cultivation for some time and have been grown in a variety of places all over the world. Most of the dendrobium species that are used in the cut flower industry are from China. China is considered to be the origin of the dendrobium genus and so is known as the 'home of the dendrobium' as well as the 'heaven of plants' as many dendrobiums have been found in China.
Most of the commercially grown dendrobiums originate from the regions of Hainan and Fujian, where the majority of the dendrobiums in China grow. Dendrobium nobile is one of the commonly grown dendrobiums in the Chinese region and is one of the most popular dendrobiums for the home garden.
Dendrobium nobile - 'blue eye'
Dendrobium nobile is easy to grow and is considered one of the easiest to grow dendrobiums available. One of the most outstanding features of Dendrobium nobile is its attractive white flowers. These are usually in a compacted flower spike which is
