I bought this today at a nursery that normally doesn't carry orchids. They had several in orange, yellow and purpley/pink. I am not familiar with this type of orchid so when I got home I googled it. This orchid's foliage doesn't look like any of the pictures I found online. Anyone know what it is?
Yeah, definitely a reed-stem Epidendrum, though with leaves that broad it might not be pure Epi. Almost certainly a hybrid, so a more specific identification is not likely.
Thanks for the info. I may go back and pick up another one of a different color. From what little research I've done on Epidendrums, it seems they are fairly hardy and bloom frequently.
I concur - that is reed-dtem Epidendrum. We grow them in beds outdoors 24/7; that is how hardy they are.
Brilliant colors on this Epidendrum hybrid !! Great pick.
If it is a species, it's likely to be Epidendrum cinnabarinum, which you can tell from radicans by its nonresupinate (upside down) flowers. Epis and Encyclias are all the rage nowadays, so there is a chance it is a species, simply a more refined cultivar.
this is one of the newer hybrid epis with a lot of cinnabarinum in it. not as cold hardy as the old fashioned epis. but i like them. they can be very brittle, so be careful not to place it where it will be knocked over.
