        Dendrobium species are either epiphytic or lithophytic. They have adapted to a wide variety of habitats.

        Dendrobium is sympodial-type of orchids. They develop pseudobulbs, which in length from less than 1 centimetre to several metres long, looklike canes. Leaf bases form sheaths that completely envelope the stem.

      Epiphytes ; Growing on clinging to branches of trees. Roots orchids have thick roots covered with silver or white velamen. Which adsorb moisture and nutrients from the air such as Plalaenopsis Cattleya Dendrobium etc.
          Terrestrials and semi-terrestrials; are thrive growing on/in the ground. Roots orchids frequently have hairy roots such as Paphiopedilum. Orchids don’t need a lot of fertilizer, either. As a matter of fact, most of these ground-plants can’t handle a lot of fertilizer. Terrestrial orchids share some characteristics with their greenhouse counterparts. These plants come in many shapes and size.
            Lithophytes; Orchids that grow in or on rocks. Those that grow on rocks are also known as epipetric or epilithic plants. Lithophytes feed off nutrients from rain water and nearby decaying plants, including their own dead tissue. Chasmophytes grow in fissures in rocks where soil or organic matter has accumulated.
