Growth habit
Dendrobium stuposum Lindl. with groove is a perennial herbaceous plants, like a cool and pleasant in warm, wet, at more than 1000 mm annual rainfall, Yin and Yang of the environment, the average temperature in January 8 ℃ higher than the growth in subtropical mountains for beautiful, suitable growth temperature of 15 to 28 degrees, is suitable for growth of air humidity of 60% above, not very strict with techniques namely, wild in loose and thick bark or more trunk growth, and some also grown in the cleft.
It is an air rooting system, which mainly requires good permeability of the root. The matrix used can be ventilated, breathable and filtered. Under proper temperature and humidity, it grows fast and has strong survival ability.
At the end of spring and the beginning of summer, inflorescences are drawn from the upper node of biennial stem. After flowering, new buds grow out of the stem base and develop into a stem.
