    Default Isochilus

    So...maybe someone can answer this mystery for me. There are a few orchids I put out for the summer, my Isochilus linearis being one of them. Well, its getting to be that time of year that I clean off the front porch and pull things inside, so I was doing some porch cleaning (ok, alot since its me and I have, well...alot of plants). While picking dead maple leaves out of my Linearis I noticed that at the ends of some of the newer growths, there was a slight swelling of the cane, and several of them had what appears to be either branches or kei keis. Does anyone know whether or not this is a common habit of the plant?

    The flowers come out of the terminal ends of the growths, so you may be seeing spikes. PM Pat Mahon (aka Mahon) and ask him. Isochilus hales from Mexico and Central America, and that's his taxonomic turf.
