    Default Orange epidendrum in bloom

    I bought this at the first orchid show I ever attended, when I got home I thought out of all the exotic plants I could have purchased I was rather dumb for making this purchase. I now know it was the right move, I love the color on this and the length of bloom time is outstanding. the cross is Pacific Glory'Shocking' X Pacific Mandarin 'Neon'Name:  org epi (Copy).jpg

    Stateless, I think what you were feeling is called "buyers remorse." In my opinion, this is a fantastic orchid with a beautiful color, and I am glad you DID buy it so that I (we) can enjoy the pics.

    I love the intense orange color and know what you mean about your Epidendrum. They grow so well and bloom so freely their like the work horse of the orchid world. AL

    I know what you mean Al, some of my more expensive exotics that require a lot of attention to bloom once or twice, and this will be in bloom off and on for the next couple of months and not much maintance.
