Dendrobium × delicatum is a Dendrobium hybrid that blooms in the winter. Plant is found growing in Queensland and New South Wales. Plant blooms in the spring with ten to thirty 2 cm wide flowers.


Plant can grow from cool to warm temperatures and medium amounts of light. Keep plant moist and fertilize during growth season. During fall keep plant dry and withhold water until new shoots appear in the spring. Lightly mist plant during dormancy to prevent pseudo bulbs from shriveling. Grow in a well drained mix of sphagnum moss or medium fir bark. Plant can also be mounted.
