Dendrobium species are mostly epiphytic, occasionally lithophytic. Epiphytic orchids use other plants, rocks or fallen trees for anchorage. They have modified aerial roots that can sometimes be a few meters long. Lithophytes are plants that grow in or on rocks. Lithophytes feed off nutrients from rain water and nearby decaying plants, including their own dead tissue.These orchids grow throughout summer, but become dormant during winter. They come to life again in the spring when there is a rapid growth of new roots. They are popular orchids and over the years, many hybrids have become available. Dendrobium tangerinum bears tangerine-coloured “antelope horn” type flowers
