The Epidendrum ilense I got only last February is in bloom again. The flowers are on one of the old canes. There are keikis on up and down the old canes. The two new growths are much taller. The plant seems happy in my hot, wet environment.
Epidendrum ilense grows in central and western Ecuador at 1000 to 2000 feet in wet, tropical forest. It is hot growing and can bloom any time of the year. Old canes and spikes can rebloom.
This plant is in a small amount of bark in a 3-inch plastic pot. It stands 18 inches above the pot and has 5 canes. I have put it in an outer clay pot because it is tippy. The newest canes need to be tied up.
