Orchid Epidendrum radicans-MN191011:  Sending a photo of the Crucifix Orchid taken at a plants exhibition.

Place :  Byculla
Date  :   February 2009
Botanical name : Epidendrum radicans

Nice photo. The red form of the species is also quite beautiful. You should try growing this one. It’s beautiful when it becomes a big specimen plant.


I had one sent by a friend from Kanyakumari, but it died presumably due to the Mumbai heat.


Here are the red and orange ones. From … collection.
