Noble Dendrobium is a beautiful and forever enchanting orchid, originating from the dense forests of Thailand and NE India. They thrive wild clinging to trees around altitude 200-2000 meters above sea level. Noble Dendrobium is the "classic" Indian softcane Dendrobium. It is a cool grower and has large showy flowers that bloom along the canes rather than from the top of the canes on a raceme. Noble Dendrobium hybrids are popular for their show of brightly colored flowers along the stems.
