This terrestrial orchid is subject to a pronounced dormancy in winter. You can in late autumn, when the plant has moved in, remove the tuber from the ground and give it a cool, dry and dark rest for the winter. As soon as the days become much lighter in the spring, the tubers can be replanted in orchid substrate. Then keep moist (iron damp), sprouting will occur within 4-6 weeks under optimal conditions. Flowering can be expected from mid-August to early September, the flowers are about 3cm high, and last 3-5 weeks depending on weather conditions.
Habenaria rhodocheila was described in 1866 by Henry Fletcher Hance (August 4, 1827 - June 22, 1886), a British diplomat who devoted his spare time to the study of Chinese plants.
