    Default Epi porpax

    A easy to grow variety of creeping, equitant Epidendrum. Extremely quick grower. A nice miniature that likes it hot and moist. The flower is as cute as a bug. about .5" from tip of the dorsal to bottom of the labellum

    Now that little cutie is abit different. I love the strange labellum. It's a looker for sure. Most of the little mini's are just too cute.

    I also have an alba variety in my collection. I haven't gotten it to bloom yet though. I am building a new rack to bring up the light intensity on some of my mounties. This plant was one of the first species that I added to my collection many years ago.

    LOL, you are too gentle. When plants won't bloom for me I show them the mulch pile or the garbage disposal...no soothing music and pics of blooming plants for my chids. I definitely believe in speaking softly but carrying a big stick
