Dendrobium loddigesii grows from Vietnam to southwest China. It is fragrant, needs bright light and a definite dry winter rest. The genus Dendrobium (Den) contains 1200 species from all parts of Asia and the Pacific. Some like a dry winter rest, all like to dry out between watering. Flowers are long lasting.
