Dendrochilum latifolium is one of the big ones at about half a metre high and with spectacular spikes over 30 cm long. It is very impressive and easily produces numerous racemes that last for several weeks.

The light must be filtered or diffused. The plant should not be exposed to direct sunlight at noon. A constant strong ventilation is necessary. Precipitation is very abundant throughout the year, with a short, slightly drier spring period.
