    Default Epidendrum medusae

    This one likes it cold and wet with about Phal light. Seem's that if it doesn't get watered every day or at least heavily misted the roots dry out and it stops growing. Found it last fall and these are its 1st flowers. They are almost 3" top to bottom and very hard to photograph. Grow's quite quickly. The stem that is in bloom was about half as long when I got it and it has grown two new stems.

    Wow. This is a perfectly grown plant with pretty flowers and you did some good photography! Actually, it is one of the best photographs of this species I have ever seen.

    Does it have any fragrance?
