The orchid grows terrestrially on mossy rocks. The four-lobed lip is available in different colours, from light pink to dark pink, cinnabar to bright red, purple and yellow through orange. In Thailand Habenaria rhodocheila is called San Hin or Lin Mangkon, which means Dragon Tongue. The flowers get a size of up to about 3 cm. Flowering period: September - October.

The tropical orchid requires cool to warm temperatures and a shady location. Watering should be restricted during the winter rest until new growth appears.
