    Default Epidendrum raniferum

    This guy is being sent to its new home in Florida, as soon as I find a box big enough. In the meantime, it's blooming. It's not as tall as some clones, canes topping out at around 3'.

    Mine went to a new home in New Hampshire! It was simply too big for my place. Is yours fragrant, Sue?

    That looks like criniferum. I have one but it is not nearly that big, its quite small. But that is one good looking plant

    The blooms are about an inch, hanging from a pendulous spike. They branch out to form a 3D spray the diameter of a roll of toilet paper. But don't be fooled, they've a lovely fragrance that will fill the room (at least mine did.)

    [Sue, correct as necessary for your plant.]

    These guys are about 1 1/2" across. Otherwise, Julie's description is right on.

    Didn't check for fragrance, and cannot, as the plant has moved on to a better place. In this case, Florida.
