Zoo Miami is currently CLOSED. We're working hard to clean the mess Hurricane Irma left us so we can reopen and welcome our guests again. Check back for a reopening date.

Dendrobium Orchid/ Lindley's Dendrobium

Bright yellow and very suggestive of spring time, Lindley’s Dendrobium is one out of over a thousand orchids that belong to the dendrobium genus. It blooms in late winter and in early spring, flourishing best in seasonally moist and humid and dry climates with bright broken sunlight. The gorgeous golden flowers grow as small, delicate petals with roundish lips. They reach about five to eight inches long on the compressed pseudobulbs. These orchids are wonderful to grow for ornamental purposes, as they instantly brighten up any setting. Lindley’s Dendrobium is native to Southern China and India. Here at Zoo Miami, it can be found on the Black Olive Tree in front of the Gerenuk paddock. It can also be seen on the Sausage Tree nearby the Monorail Station 3. Look out for them on your next visit; they can make a beautiful photo!
