    Default Epidendrum elongatum, cochlidium and Ballerina "Orange"

    A few of my reedstem epidendrums are now coming into bloom. Epi. cochlidium (pic 1), Epi. elongatum (pic 2) and Epi. Ballerina "Orange" (pic 3) have already opened some of their flowers, while Epi. jasminosus, Epi. porphyreum and Epi. radicans still need a couple more weeks. The flower stems continue to grow and elongate, remaining in bloom for many months and should not be cut off after they finish, as they often resprout for several years producing further flowers from side shoots of the faded spike (sometimes even keikis).
