This species is a terrestrial orchid occurring in leaf mold in forests, below evergreen trees, where it is humid. It is a white version of Gastrodia elata, which is unlikely to see one in the same spot the following year in the same way, though not an annual plant; it is a saprophyte having a symbiotic relationship with fungi.
