Dendrobium moschatum grows in Southeast Asia at low altitudes. It is cool to hot growing, needs bright light and is fragrant. It blooms spring into summer on leafless canes. Flowers last only a few days. 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.
