Notes:

Dendrobium loddigesii are kept cooler and much drier from late autumn, In this period flower induction takes place. The temperature should not fall below 15°C, too low temperatures lead to loss of leaves. At warm temperatures, numerous keikis form quickly, and when separated and potted individually, they continue to grow rapidly. Old plants form a dense carpet covered with flowers in spring if well cultivated.
