    Yep, that's definitely Epidendrum stamfordianum. It's a lovely little thing that grows best in fairly bright light and either mounted or in a wooden slat basket, though pot culture is not too difficult either. It's a very interesting plant in that it is related to cattleyas, laelias, encyclias, etc ..., all of which bloom from the tip of mature pseudobulbs, whereas Epi. stamfordianum blooms from the base of a mature pseudobulb. The inflorescence starts off like a new pseudobulb, but instead of producing leaves it becomes a flower spike. The only other species in this group of plants that does this (as far as I can remember) is Cattleya walkeriana, which also blooms from new semi-pseudobulbs/inflorescences. Both plants do occasionally flower from the tip of a mature pseudobulb, but it's a rare occurrence.

    Ups! I forgot about C. walkeriana's sister species: C. nobilior. Well spotted King_Kjeldz.

    You're welcome eirc (... should that be Eric?), it's always a pleasure to spread a bit of knowledge around.
