Epigeneium nakaharaei in bloom

Epigeneium nakaharaei - Flower photo by Richard LindbergEpigeneium nakaharaei - Plant photo by Richard LindbergThe SCOS meeting was Tuesday. I remember taking a walk through the greenhouse looking for plants to take. I missed seeing this plant. Epigeneium nakaharaei grows in Taiwan in the central mountain range. It is cool to warm growing, fragrant and blooms in the fall and winter. It needs bright light.

This is the first bloom for this plant since I got it last fall from the San Francisco opportunity table. The new pseudobulb is still developing, I think. If it is as large as the one next to it, the plant is in the right spot in the greenhouse.
