Origins of the Dendrobium

The dendrobium noble is an epiphytic orchid which, in its spontaneous state, grows throughout the tropical belt of Asia: India, Thailand, Vietnam, Burma. The "group" is actually composed of many subspecies similar in appearance, but capable of adapting to various climatic conditions: some grow on the coasts, with constant temperatures and high humidity, others want a cooler environment, typical of the Himalayan hills. The hybrids that we find easily on the market all have more or less the same needs, in particular they want high temperatures and humidity for most of the season, followed by a cool and dry period.
