Neat orchid! Looks and grows much like the real thing (Bamboo). And is a Giant sized orchid. Too big for me.
Have you read up on this guy on IOSPE?

Arundina graminifolia (Bamboo Orchid) grows on soil.
No bark media required for this plant. And grows under direct sunlight.
Yes Arundina is a terrestrial and grows in banks of river and moss rich areas. is quite a beauty when it matures and blooms
It would be neat to live in a climate where you could grow that as a privacy hedge!
I have the right environment, now all I have to do is find one. Any idea who has them in the states, please send me a PM!
Found a nursery who has them locally!
good day Harvey

yes there are seedpods, disposed several times.
Depending on the soil condition and temperature, the Arundina can grow anywhere between 18 inches ( 1/2 metre) to nearly 6 feet ( 2 metres). This is one of the commonest orchid seen in our Malaysian hill stations, particulary the Cameron Highlands. On the drive up the Cameron Highlands, fields of these orchids occur on both sides of the road from around 1000 feet to the summit around 6000 feet. At lower elevations the plants are shorter and become much taller the higher we go. bTW they thrive in full sunlight and can't grow where there is full shade.
I picked one up yesterday about the size of what you have Raja. The people at the nursery told me they don't bloom as much in Florida as in some other areas, but thought if I fertilized it more often I might get more. Now all I have to do is find a pot to re-pot it.
