The present investigation was carried out at orchidorium, Regional Horticultural Research and Extension Centre, University of Horticultural Sciences campus, GKVK, Bengaluru during May 2017.  The results indicated a significant influence on Fresh weight of spikes, cumulative water uptake, cumulative water loss and vase life of Dendrobium cut flowers as influenced by growing conditions and varieties. Fresh weight of spikes was observed maximum in var. Mona Red and var. Big White throughout the study. Highest cumulative water uptake (57.40 g) was observed in var. Mona Red (V2) followed by var. Big White (V7) (47.07 g). Whereas, it was lowest (18.30 g) in var. Burana Jade (V6) Maximum cumulative water loss (48.11 g) was obtained under polyhouse condition (G1) than the shadehouse condition (G2) (39.68).With respect to Dendrobium varieties, cumulative water loss had showed significant effect. Highest amount of water loss (80.89 g) was recorded in var. Mona Red (V2) followed by var. Big White (V7) (76.10 g).Whereas, lowest (22.89 g) was noticed in var. Charming White (V3).Relatively longer vase life of flowers was observed from polyhouse condition (G1 (31.38 days) than shadehouse condition (29.08 days).Varieties showed significant influence on vase life of spikes. Variety Mona Red (V2) and var. Big White (V7) had longest vase life (40.00 and 40.00 days each respectively) followed by var. Ear Sakul (V1) (32.50 days).While shortest vase life of 20.83 days was recorded in var. Nopporn Pink (V8).
