    Default Unidentified Flowering Orchid Epi

    Got this among a bunch of epis from Angela several month back, second blooming for this colour. I didn't get the first ones.

    Thats just an Epi. radicans hybrid, many of them seem to be nameless lol...very nice though. I had one called Tokyo Snow or something, and it was PURE WHITE, and it flowered for 6 months!

    A nice Epi. Like that color much and Epicattleya growth habits are a nice free flowing/growing contrast to most other orchids. AL

    Sorry, but yes Epidendrum 'growth habits'. As in wandering stems, spikes, keiki's, and even seed pods. AL

    Thanks everyone. I just wished all my epidendrums would flower at the same time. Would be nice to see a pot full of multicoloured blooms. But this one is cute. Got about 3 kekis from it and it just put out 2 new growths.

    Hah! If I could even get all the BLOOMS of my orchids to open at the same time, I'd be overjoyed. Beautiful color.
