Dendrobium lindleyi is a showy plant with bright yellow orange flowers. The magnificent flowers of Dendrobium lindleyi are a huge reward from an easy to grow species.

Possibly best grown in a basket or mounted on a treefern slab with extra water, the species will then develop into large specimens.

Very amenable to cultivation, just rest the plant in the cooler months, use lots of water, fertiliser, good drainage and bright sunlight just short of leaf burn.

I find that they only flower best when grown in high light conditions and must be protected from winter rainfall if at all possible. I give them a very brief spray maybe every 2 or 3 weeks over winter and don't stress too much when you notice they have shrivelled a little....they will benefit from that and reward you with prolific flowers.
