Dendrobium striolatum is a lithophytic orchid species that originates from Australia, where it’s known as the Streaked Rock Orchid.
I have found that this miniature sized orchid grows happily when mounted onto cork bark, so don’t panic if you don’t have a spare limestone boulder, or decorative cliff face to mount your plants onto! Indeed, Dendrobium striolatum is an easy going orchid, which is tolerant of a range of temperatures – from cool to warm. Don’t go mad though – this tender orchid species will not tolerate being frosted.
Dendrobium striolatum produces sweetly scented flowers in springtime. To see my Dendrobium striolatum plant in bud and in bloom, please click here.
