Orchids are beautiful and popular house flowers. There are 28,000 species of orchids, including the dendrobium orchid. These plants can be highly adaptable, which makes them ideal as houseplants. They do take some specific care, but their unique, long-lasting blooms have endeared them to those who grow them. Many people seek to propagate their own orchids, to keep them for many years. Doing so requires that you know how to prune your dendrobium orchid.
Place orchids in the kitchen to take advantage of fluorescent lighting.
Move orchids away from windows on cold nights to protect them from outdoor temperatures.

Orchids will die if they receive too little light, or too much water.
