Habenaria crinifera, Doll Orchid from N. Western Ghats 04092011:  A rare epiphytic & nbsp; orchid found on moss covered stems of old trees in evergreen forests. Plant about 10-20 cm tall, leafy at base; leaves 2-3, oblong, 5-15 cm. Flowers in short racemes 5-8 cm long on peduncles 10-20 cm long. Bracts 1 cm. Capsules 3-4 cm. Possibly the only species of the genus that is epiphytic (at least in NW Ghats), the rest being terrestrial. Flowering presently along with terestrial Habenarias.

Here comes the Beauty among the genus Habenaria

Habenaria crinifera Lindl. Commenly known as Doll Orchid

Photograph on Mango tree at Amba on 07/08/2012.


I was wondering how come Habenaria on a tree. Checked earlier threads. Saw one post from …
It says that it is probably the only species from the genus which is epiphytic. All other Habenarias are terrestrials.

Sharing picture of Habenaria crinifera

Very cute again..


Very good pictures. The only Habenaria which is epiphytic. Am I right?


In Southern part of India may be yes this is the only one epiphytic, but there are few relatives in Himalayas that grow on trees.
