    How I wish these were reed stem epidendrums as I have never seen one. Then I would be the first one in my city to have them. But if they were, then the vendor would definitely not sell them at such a cheap price over here.

    Thanks for the info Zainal. You know what, I didn't even know about the staurochilus and that it is endemic to my country. What a shame. But now, thanks to you, I know something new.

    I believe you are right, Yew Sung. If ever epidendrums would make their debut here, I think it would be at those large agri trade fairs where big orchid nurseries participate. Most probably, this one would be an arachnis since these are really common in my locale. What puzzles me is that the leaves are not fleshy and stiff like the other archnis I have. It is a more slender plant, with leaves which are pliable.

    I ran outside between rains yesterday and looked at my plants, to check and I believe Zainal to be correct, I had confused the arachnis hybrid and the arachnis , leaves look similar to plant in question. my epi radicans does throw roots out all over the plant, but the hybrid reed stem types do not, also the reed stem types I have are very fleshy almost succulent type leaves. good luck

    Exactly. However, catts have been around for ages. And they are quite popular in Southeast Asia. The same, though, cannot be said of epidendrums. In fact, I have never seen one. Not even in the big agri trade fairs in my part of the country.

    Oh well, guess we'll just have to wait for the flowers, Ed. I'll plant some of them in full tropical sun, that's 33 degrees centigrade daily, to induce flowering.

    That is actually quite surprising, since a single reed-stem epi cutting could probably take over the country in 10 years. Contrary to some of what has been said here, they are a very diverse group and many do root along the whole stem, and they don't all have hard fleshy leaves. Superficially, they are hard to tell apart from various tall slender monopodial orchids, so it will be interesting to see them when they bloom. Please post when they do.

    Zainal, now, almost a year later, I think that you and Yew-Sung are right. They are beginning to resemble Arachnis more and more. I think these are Arachnis which were grown in heavy shade because I have some Arachnis that went the other way around. I mean, when they were moved to the shade, they began to look like these orchids on the table. The canes became thinner and the leaves are less tough, becoming softer.

    Just an update, Kirk. Nine months on, they haven't bloomed yet.
