Because of its elegance and color variety, the dendrobium orchid is often chosen as a bouquet for table settings and special occasions. If you receive cut denodrium orchids, it is important to care for them properly to extend their beauty. The proper trimming, container and temperature of air and water all contribute to a longer lasting orchid display.
If a dendrobium orchid has been cut for use as a corsage or a boutonniere, try to keep its stem in a water tube, or at least refreigerate or keep in a cool place until right before it is to be worn. Take care when affixing it to clothing not to touch the blossom with fingers or pins.
Keep dendrobium orchid bouquets away from heat sources such as lamps, stoves or direct sunlight.
