In winter, dendrobium feels great on the southern windows, fertilizing is not needed at this time, watering is limited. Immediately after the end of flowering, you can increase watering and start pampering the orchid with additional fertilizing.
In summer, dendrobium feels great oneastern and western windows, where it is light, but not too hot.
