Dendrochilum propinquum - Chain Orchid

$ 22.00

Dendrochilum propinquum is an orchid from the Philippines that will grow a chain of small, orangey pink blooms, cascading out of the pot. This plant is a fast grower, and after its late-winter bloom, the plant will double in size the next growing season. Instead of growing larger leaves, the plant will grow denser with more pseudobulbs and leaves.

This is an easy orchid for beginners and will bloom reliably if not allowed to dry out for too long. The chain of tiny flowers adds a plume of color wherever you decide to grow this plant.


 Light: Medium to bright, indirect light. Too much direct sunlight can harm the plant.
• Water: In the summer this orchid wants to stay wet. You can leave it in a little dish of water through the hottest months as long as you're changing water in the reservoir. Through the winter, water when the top layer of substrate dries out, about 1-2 times per week.
• Considerations: Increased humidity can help induce blooms and new growth. In the spring and summer, a weekly low dose of fertilizer will keep this orchid growing healthy.


You'll get a healthy Dendrochilum propinquum that meets our rigorous quality standards in a 2.75" nursery pot. No two plants are alike, and yours will have its own unique shape, size and personality; expect this natural variation from the photos.

Excited about this little orchid!

I haven’t had success with orchids, so I wanted to give this one a little time before reviewing (not that my failures would reflect on Pistils!) Arrived perfectly packed, in excellent condition. One leaf looked tired, and it dropped right away, eventually followed by a second leaf. Two weeks after arriving, some new growth started that turned out to be two flower spikes, but those eventually aborted (I had to move the plant while on vacation). Now, after two months in one spot, it’s holding steady and showing what looks like another flower spike coming up. Location is a shady south-facing window, near heater and drafty front door. 60f at night, 70f daytime. I water every 2-3 days, and mist every morning. Thank you Pistils! Love trying new plants.
