The Dendrobium lindleyi is a miniature epiphytic orchid, native to the mountains of Southeast Asia. Unlike other Dendrobium varieties, the lindleyi produces short, dense, spindle-shaped pseudobulbs. Flower spikes begin to emerge towards the end of winter, and after several weeks, will develop into an arching pendant of golden-yellow flowers, that will deepen in colour as the flowers mature. 

CARE:

Requires bright, indirect light outdoors, sheltered from any direct sun. Being an epiphytic species, Dendrobium can either be mounted on your choice of raft, or potted in a well-draining orchid pot, using small-medium grade orchid bark. If mounted, Dendrobium will require increased humidity and very frequent watering to maintain adequate hydration. Potted Dendrobium require frequent and thorough watering, allowing water to run completely through the pot. Fertilise fortnightly with an orchid specific fertiliser throughout spring and summer.

Care instructions:
We recommend a quality well-draining mix to provide aeration and deter root rot. A good way to gauge if your plant needs a drink is to feel the soil with your finger. Test to see if the soils is still wet a couple centimetres down. The same test can be done with a moisture meter but be sure to sample multiple spots to get an accurate reading. Remember that the rate of watering provided is a guide only and should be adjusted depending on your potting medium and the environment in which you keep your plant. Happy gardening!
