Protection and production of orchids in their natural habitats need to go hand in hand, and the involvement of local ethnic communities needs to be assured. This is the only way to prevent the exinction of wild orchids in the intensely utilized landscapes of Asia.

Dendrobium devonianum

Aside from being a true beauty, this Dendrobium is an important medicinal species in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM).

The flowers of Dendrobium devonianum are truly beautiful.


The elegantly slim orchid is traded as a precious medicinal plant. From this picture one can assess how many stems need to be harvested for 1 kg of dried stems.


The dried stems of Dendrobium devonianum are commonly used as an immune system enhancer.

Most Dendrobium species during dry season shed leaves and turn into plants that resemble a cactus. This is a perfect adaptation to the dry and sun-drenched habitats up in the trees. In extreme years they face 6 months without rain and their hosting tree might even shed its leaves. Therefore, Dai people traditionally planted this orchid on the roofs of their houses.

All Dendrobium species are nowadays used for Chinese medicine. We are producing medicinal orchids under natural conditions and we care in special projects for the survival of orchid mother plants in their natural environment.

We also specialize in cold tolerant orchid genus from South China, Tibet, North Myanmar (Burma), Northern Thailand, and North Vietnam.

Many of our species and hybrids from tissue culture can be kept outdoors in Europe and the USA during most parts of the year.

We exclusively work with importers on long term arrangements. Their partnership enables us to protect the diversity of orchids in their natural environments under our care.

Should you be interested to work with us as a distributor for your country, please write to us.

Thank you for your interest in our concept.


NEW !

ORCHID FLOWER TEA


A truly rare treat not only for orchid lovers...


For orchid importers:

Your ecologically friendly production of orchids:
proudly traceable!


Imagine, the traceability of your supply chain leads your customers to the tropical jungles of the Mekong river and to the Himalayan mountains where Tibet meets Yunnan. Immerged in diverse culture and rich biodiversity, your customers can visit the places and people where your organic products start from pristine soils, clean air, and where they support the livelihood of local ethnic communities.

Would this add to the sustainability and credibility of your company?

Would your trademark benefit from international research publications lauding your company's involvement in saving the rain forest?

If you are in the food, cosmetics, flower, herbal, and medical business, certifying your products as contributing to rain forest and biodiversity protection will be an advantage with a competitive edge.

The TianZi Biodiversity Centre is working with German Universities to design land use systems, which are bound to change paradigms: we promote rare agro-biodiversity species, manage complexity, and find alternatives to destructive forms of mono culture.

If all this is in line with your company's business concept - please contact us.

The TianZi Team.
