Epigeneium nakaharaei

Epigeneium nakaharaei - Flower photo by Richard LindbergEpigeneium nakaharaei - Flower photo by Richard LindbergEpigeneium nakaharaei - Plant photo by Richard LindbergOne of the leads on the Epigeneium nakaharaei has bloomed. I am looking forward to two more flowers this year from the remaining leads.

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. The genus Epigeneium (Epig) contains 35 species in Southeast Asia and the Philippines. They do well mounted in warm, humid and shady conditions.

This plant is mounted on a 5-inch hardwood stick. There are 19 pseudobulbs with three leads. Each of the leads has enough pseudobulbs to be a nice division. Besides that, there is a section of older pseudobulbs.

This needs to be re-mounted. I will take one of the leads and move it to the center of the stick. I will sell the other two divisions on eBay next week.

  1. I'm from the Philippines and do not recall seeing this species. I learn something new visiting your informative site. Maria Palanca
