Classified according to live orchids.
- based on live orchids (epiphytic orchid) is based on the orchid trees. It has roots in helping the adhesive and can be used to find roots in the food, water. To be fed to the trunk, such as Dendrobium and Vanda.
- orchid soil (terrestrial orchid) as part of the orchid roots live in the soil or beneath the surface. Some have leaves growing season Thung, but some species are just some of it growing season. And the rest will stay just head them in the season that is not appropriate.
- orchids live on rocks (lithophytic orchid) is a growing orchids. The roots hold the island to live on the rocks.
- water orchid is a small group. This is the root of the probe into the water. To find food to raise the trunk. They like water, all kinds of orchids.
By type of growth.
- The growth top (monopodial vegetative) growth is the top non-Ltd. Is a tissue growth that can shoot growth with no end. And the tissue on the side. The new balance will tip growth is a never-ending.
- The growth side (sympodial vegetative) growth is a characteristic of the tissue with the tip is limited. But tissue new from the point of growth side of the trunk.
By type of food.
- orchids can synthesize food (autophytic orchid) is the most common orchid in the world. Orchids are the chlorophyll and can make their own food by photosynthesis.
- orchids eating carcasses (saprophytic orchid) is a small group of orchids that can not create their own food due to lack of chlorophyll. But will rely on some type of food by microorganisms. Can be found only during the bloom.
Orchids by the root system.
this is the standard way for using because it’s easy to select the appropriate device planted, Mostly we will separate the root system is like this
- Ground root system, which are caused underground root. This orchid is usually found in the woods with a clear change of season. When dry, it will stay in the soil. When it rains, it will have sprouted and the young leaves emerge from the soil with spike.
- Semi Ground root system,found naturally in the ground up. Sometimes, it was found that the leaves will fall off when the dry season, but look at stumps still shoots good. Upon receipt of proper humidity will have sprouted are all goneMost live in the area of decay or a rock pile which the orchid leaf pile to live with these things as food.
- Air root system, orchids living on the land on rocks or on trees on the land if it is found in areas where the leaves are thick pile. Or high water is not trapped in the air for half the root cells of the root is thick and looks like a sponge and absorb water.
- Semi air root system,Roots will look big and rough. Less seems to be that if the roots are real thin solid inside. Root surface will act to absorb water, store water, can withstand drought better. Orchid root does not like to live in a wet state for too long. Like to make clear that the roots can dry quickly.
