Dendrochilum filiforme, commonly known as the Golden Chain Orchid, is an attractive, small plant native to the Philippines, standing at just 2-5 ft. This plant is an epiphyte and prefers growing conditions in semi-shade and regular water. Even though it prefers a somewhat protected position, a constant air movement is essential to the success of its growth.

The Golden Chain Orchid is known for its golden yellow and orange fragrant blossoms and can be grown outdoors in USDA Zones 9-11. As the weather conditions can be unpredictable in cold regions, they can also be grown in pots as long as they are kept sheltered and provided with adequate warmth. When kept in pots, it is important to provide good air circulation and an even layer of moisture in the soil. It is crucial to watch out for sudden temperatures and water levels, as this can affect the success of the growth and flowering.

With proper care, the Golden Chain Orchid can provide gorgeous blooms that will liven up any outdoor space. From hanging baskets to gardens and patios, this small but exquisite plant is sure to be a valued addition to any home.
