Dendrobium lindleyi is a miniature to small-sized, hot to cool growing epiphyte in Assam India, Guangdong, Guangxi, Guizhou, and Hainan provinces of China, Hong Kong, Myanmar, Thailand, China, Laos, Cambodia, and Vietnam. I love this guy for his densely packed, slightly flattened pseudobulbs with a single leaf that create a mat of orchid loveliness. It’s a beautiful plant if you’re a form lover, and it produces stunning egg yolk yellow flowers in the spring for you flower lovers.
You will often see D. lindleyi, D. aggregatum, and D. jenkinsii listed interchangeably. In fact, D. aggregatum and D. lindleyi are the same species (D. lindleyi is the correct name). D. jenkinsii has a smaller stature, generally, and D. lindleyi has an inflorescence with many flowers as opposed to a single-flowered inflorescence in D. jenkinsii.
