Epidendrum coriifolium

Epidendrum coriifolium - Flower photo by Richard LindbergI enjoy green flowers but don't get plants just because of that. However, this is a "must have" for a green-flower collector.

Epidendrum coriifolium grows from Mexico through Central America to northern South America in low altitude and wet mountain forests. It is warm to hot growing, fragrant and needs bright light.

From that description it sounds hard to grow, but it is not, at least in a bright greenhouse. This piece is a backbulb from a division made less than a year ago. It has started its second new growth.
