    Default What kind of Orchid is this

    Can someone help me idenify one of my Orchids. It has the leaves and roots like the "Pelatantheria rivessi" However the blooms are on a long stalk like a "Dendrobium" with tiny 1/4" blooms in clusters.
    Please help,
    Thanks

    Your plant is a reed stem Epidendrum, very commonly grown in Florida. There are many similar species and hybrids, and no way to determine from a picture which one you may have with any certainty.

    Bob , as Kirk says you have a reed-stem Epidendrum. Pelantantheria are monopodial and continue to grow fro the terminal end and also produce a lot of keikis. The majority produce tiny, flowers less than 1/2 an inch in size on very short stems from the main stalk of the plant.
