Dendrobrium nobile

Asked July 26, 2015, 10:20 AM EDT

How to save my dendrobrium nobile? The mother plant died, but this part was saved because there are roots growing with a new plant. How to replant and care for it so it can thrive?

Hi there, the plant is telling you what to do, which is great! Cut off a section of the mama stem just below the new little baby there and put the baby in new orchid media with the small section of the mama stem still attached. The baby plant should take over from there and start growing on its own. Pretty easy! Best of luck!
