    Default Epidendrum ibaguense in spike

    The same friend that gave me the Vanda that's growing a spike now, also gave me this Epidendrum. I'm pretty sure I have a spike (actually I think I have more than one spike, but the others are too small to be sure). It has been outside since she gave it to me (end of December, to be more precise), protected from rain, but in full sun whenever there was sun. It has quite a reddish teint that I'm not sure if it's because of the sun or the cold. I hope to show you pictures of the blooms in a near future. Sorry for the bad picture, but it was taken in a hurry. I'll make better photos soon.

    Congratulations!!! I remember many years ago there was an article in the AOS about Epi. ibguense. I think the grower was in Florida and was giving it full sun. I wondered at the time if I could even flower it here in Pennsylvania (around 41 N. lat.). I still haven't got one but I just might try it some day. Love this species!

    Good to know they love full sun. It'll be getting plenty of it.
