    Oeceoclades maculata is considered an invasive weed in south Florida, harmful to natural habitats and a nuisance in cultivated fields and landscapes. I would encourage you not to contribute to further distribution of this species, especially if it is not already common in your area. Just one or 2 plants can mean millions of seedlings in a short time spreading far beyond your control.

    I wonder if the garden will let me get some if I tell them that they are in the invasive list ??? I wouldn't let seed pods form and I really haven't seen it anywhere else down here.
