    Default Robiquetia cerina

    This picture was taken at the cool house in the Singapore Botanical Gardens.

    Robiquetia cerina is a pendulous monopodial from the Philippines and New Guinea which forms basal offshoots when mature. The plants grow as an as an epiphyte at elevations over 350 meters occuring on tree trunks. Flowers are very small (3mm wide) but are densely clustered on a racemose, conical, pendulous inflorescence that has the flowers open in succession from the top and last from 2-4 or 5 weeks.

    What a cool plant! I would have thought that it was some type of pendulous dendrobium!
