Among the orchid species available, fresh cut dendrobium orchids are used quite often in today's flower design and weddings.
The name is from the Greek dendron (tree) and bios (life); it means one who lives on trees,or essentially, epiphyte.
An epiphyte is a plant that grows upon another plant (such as a tree) non-parasitically or sometimes upon some other object (such as a building or a telegraph wire).
The plant derives its moisture and nutrients from the air and rain and sometimes from debris accumulating around it, and is found in the temperate zone (as many mosses, liverworts, lichens and algae) and in the tropics (as many ferns, cacti, orchids, and bromeliads) also called air plants.
