Arthrochilus oreophilus is a small terrestrial that forms small colonies of rosette like, green leafed plants on the forest floor. The deciduous tuber would require a leafmould rich soil mix and a dry winter.

The genus grows from sea level to the tops of the ranges in eastern tropical Australia, so various plants would be cool to warm growing.
