    Default Epidendrum species (Ibaguense?)

    I posted this sometime ago under a wrong heading in a wrong sub-forum. That was during its first flowering. Thanks to Zainal for pointing me in the right direction otherwise I'd still be searching for its identity amongst the hundreds of species dendrobium till now.

    I first attached it to a tree. When I found out about its true identity and upon the advice of other forum members, I planted it in soil. It is now on its second flowering. The camera couldn't quite capture the right shade of red. Actually it is a brighter, more attractive red than it appears in these photos.

    this is still a young plant. depending on sun/shade level, they can get quite tall, like 4 to 6 feet. at one point mine got taller than me. i got rid of it because it (and a few others like it in purple and yellow and orange) was taking over my balcony, but if i ever have a yard, i would get another. but for now i stick with some of the newer smaller hybrids, they don't grow as well, but nice when they do flower. in time, yours will ALWAYS be in flower. year 'round. the stems can flower for a few years in good weather.

    That's good to hear, thank you. I think I am the only one who grows this over here. It was rescued from a friend's farm in the hills of Maguindanao when the tree on which it was growing was cut down.

    I have a couple large containers of red epis. One got sat against a fence area this summer and now it cannot be moved. It has attached to the ground and fence. I hope it will be okay this winter. If it gets too cold I may have to wrap it. I recently came across pictures of a ladies garden just North of me in Clearwater and her garden is overrun with them. I hope mine will be as hardy. When your's gets larger the pictures should be amazing...

    Wow, Connie. I can just imagine a whole garden overrun with epidendrum. Are they fast growers? Because some orchids take forever to grow.

    Hello, Ed. I hope mine, too, will be a prolific bloomer. You see, nobody knows about epidendrums over here. Even local backyard orchid enthusiasts wouldn't know what an epidendrum is. For most of us here, orchids are either vandas, dendrobiums, cattleyas, oncidiums, phalaenopsis, and to a lesser extent, arachnis. Anything else that doesn't fit any of those groups are referred to as "native". You can see how confusing that gets, especially when one chances upon an epidendrum growing in the hinterlands, and it's not even a native of the Philippines.

    The soil has very good drainage, Zainal. Actually, all the hibiscus and rose cuttings I plant in it don't survive because the soil easily dries up. Maybe it's good for the epidendrum.
