or Epi. magnoliae var. magnoliae
A tiny one also a US native. Flowers are about 1 cm across. Foliage forms a dense mat.
I love this one.

That is nice... I particularly like the pinky bits on the column...
Easy to grow? Cold? I thought I best ask before adding to the want list...
Thanks for sharing.
Oh that is a nifty one. I especially like minis just for the delicacy, and this one is very nice. Thanks for sharing the great picture.
It seems easy enough. I've only had this since last fall. Through the winter, it just kind of sat there, but is now starting it's spring growth. It seems to bloom from every new growth so far. Taking into consideration where this was collected from (legally in one of the Carolinas), I would assume it experiences quite chilly temps in the winter and very hot, humid summers. Good light also.
It's supposed to have a very nice, honey fragrance, but I haven't been able to detect that yet.
There also is another variety Epidendrum conopseum var. mexicana I would like to have. From what I understand it is quite a bit taller than this plant, but still a smaller sized gem.
Kev, that's great. I love the shape of the flowers, and their little pink noses!
(LOL! How's that for scientific, botanical talk?)
I love it , very diffrent and cute , Is it in a terrestrial mix? does it require reduced water in the winter ? Ok I will now thanks for sharing it Gin
I have it in sphag in a very shallow clay pot, kind of like a mini bulb pan. I think some folks grow them mounted. I did reduce water (kind of) during the winter, but now that it's in grow mode, I keep it kind of moist. I guess that's what they want from what I've read.
Thanks for the info. Kev . Gin
Love the shape of the flowers too...
