Dendrobium Orchid 'Polar Fire'
Dendrobium species are mostly epiphytic, occasionally lithophytic. Epiphytic orchids use other plants, rocks or fallen trees for anchorage. They have modified aerial roots that can sometimes be a few meters long. Lithophytes are plants that grow in or on rocks. Lithophytes feed off nutrients from rain water and nearby decaying plants, including their own dead tissue.These orchids grow throughout summer, but become dormant during winter. They come to life again in the spring when there is a rapid growth of new roots. They are popular orchids and over the years, many hybrids have become available. 'Polar Fire' produces numerous cream-white, pink, bi-coloured flowers from late spring. Shade of pink may vary to that shown as they arrive to us in a mixed selection.

About Your Order:
Pot Sizes Explained
Your plant will be delivered in a 10cm nursery pot. When ordering a plant for a decorative plant pot, please ensure the nursery pot is a couple of centimeters smaller that the decorative pot.
Unpacking Your Plant
When your plant is packed, the growers will ensure the plant is packed tightly to ensure they are protected during transit. Open the outer packing and you may find that some stems, vines or leaves need to be unfurled. Don't rush, transporting plants can be a little stressful for them so slowly tease apart over the coming days. Some loss of leaves is unavoidable, however all of our plants are sent in top health so will recover and regenerate accordingly with their species.
