A deciduous plant with subterrainium tuber.Terrestrial, requires a humus rich media, good drainage and a dry rest once the leaves have fallen. There are colour variants.
The tuber likes to attach to a small rock, so the addition a a few rocks in the pot may be an advantage.In spring, a repot into a fresh rich leafmould and soil mix plus some organic fertiliser will prompt strong new leaf growth and the apical flower spike of colourful flowers.
Habenaria rhodocheila is an intermediate to warm grower, but should be easily handled in the cold glasshouse as it is dormant in the cold months, when the pot can be removed and held dry, with an occasional water to prevent excess drying out of the tuber.
