THE BAMBOO ORCHID ORIGINATES FROM SOUTH-EAST ASIA, THE HIMALAYAS, MALAYSIA, THAILAND, SOUTH CHINA AND JAPAN. THE ORCHIDS IN THESE BEAUTIFUL COUNTRIES GROW INTO TRUE SHOWERS OF BLOSSOMS ON ROCKS IN MOUNTAIN VALLEYS AND IN TREES IN MOUNTAIN FORESTS. THIS IS ALSO WHERE THE ORIGINAL NAME – DENDROBIUM NOBILÉ – COMES FROM. DENDRON IS GREEK FOR ‘TREE’ AND ‘BIOS’ MEANS LIFE.

THE CONDITIONS IN THESE TROPICAL REGIONS ARE IDEAL FOR THE MYSTICAL BAMBOO ORCHID, EVEN AT GREAT HEIGHTS UP TO 2000 METRES. DURING THE DAY, THEY ARE PROTECTED FROM THE BRIGHT SUN BY THE CANOPY OF TREES AND THE FILTERED LIGHT ALLOWS THEM TO GROW OPTIMALLY. DURING THE NIGHT, WHEN THE TEMPERATURE FALLS, THIS BEAUTY RESTS IN THE COOL, GAINING NEW ENERGY TO FORM BUDS AND BLOSSOM ONCE AGAIN. SOME PLANTS CAN CARRY SOME 200-300 BLOSSOMS AT ONCE, ALL OF WHICH OPEN AT THE SAME TIME. THIS CREATES A TRUE EXPLOSION OF COLOUR AND SCENT.
