For Sharing Habenaria crinifera Lindl.:
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.

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.
