Dendrobium lamellatum is found only in Java and is a miniature to small sized, warm-growing species with extremely flat green “canes” and broad, thin leaves that are clustered towards the apex. D. lamellatum blooms in the winter, late spring and summer producing few to several lemon yellow flowers arising from the nodes at the apex of the stem. D. lamellatum falls into the group that I call the “flat-caned guys” (very original) which includes D. platygastrium, D. linawaianum, and D. trantuanii.
As with many dendrobiums, water and fertilize liberally in summer, and slack off for a slightly drier winter rest to initiate blooming in the early spring.
Water: Water well in summer, back off in winter
