About Epidendrum Orchids
Mexican-native, Epidendrum orchids are popularly known as the ďPoor Manís OrchidsĒ because they are one of the easiest orchids to grow. This type of orchid produces delicate cattleya-shaped blooms in a spherical head with as many as 40 flowers at a time. The flowers come in many colors including white, yellow, orange, red, pink, purple, and all the shades in between.

Epidendrums are so easy to propagate, producing keikis or baby plants that can be detached and replanted. They proliferate without much coaxing that in some parts of South America, they are even considered as weeds. They can thrive in temperatures in the 100 degrees as well as continue growing until itís freezing. They grow tall and can get top-heavy, thus need to be staked or perhaps grown against a wall. Grown outdoors in direct sunlight, they can usually support themselves as shown here.
