Dendrobium catenatum has high medicinal value and is widely used in clinical practice. Due to the special natural growth environment, slow reproduction rate, and the lack of endosperm in its own seeds, the wild population resources are very limited. Artificial breeding uses asexual reproduction of shoot tips, and the culture medium is more mature in the West, and the culture environment is still controversial. The light quality has a unique influence on the growth of D. catenatum, so the growth of D. catenatum bud tissue culture seedlings was compared under the condition of red light and composite light. We found that the reproductive efficiency of D. catenatum under red light was better than that under composite light, and thus the yield under red light condition also increased. In consequence, red light is more suitable for the tissue culture of D. catenatum.
