Gastrodia elata is a chlorophyll-lacking saprophytic orchid plant inhabiting wood floors, making big oblong tuberous roots of around 10cm in length, gradually becoming hollow as the terrestrial part grows up. Flower stalks, 0.6-1m in height, tinge yellow-red, wear some membranaceous ramenta. Flowers, many in number, are yellow-brown and bloom in a racemose manner in June-July.
