Dendrobium orchids make good houseplants and are fairly easy to grow, though they can be picky about their environment. Thus, paying close attention to their growing conditions is key for a healthy, well-blooming plant. In general, these orchids like small pots where their roots can be somewhat cramped, and they need to be by a bright window if you're keeping them indoors. Plan to water and feed your orchid often during the growing season but then back off in the winter months.
