GENERAL INFORMATION

  • Epidendrum orchid plants are among the most common and the most unusual forms of the flowers.
  • This group of orchids encompasses over 1,000 varieties of sub-tropical to tropical plants.
  • That means most of them are not suited for long-term outdoor growing.
  • Instead, they thrive in a greenhouse or even the home interior.
  • Most orchid care is the same, but just in case you don’t have a clue which variety of orchid you have, here are some details on the Epidendrums.
  • The majority of these plants are epiphytic and live suspended from a tree or cliff with minimal soil.
  • A few are terrestrial but they also thrive on low nutrient media.
  • The forms of Epidendrums vary widely.
  • Some produce pseudobulbs while others have cane-like stems.
  • The color and shape of the flower petals depend upon the cultivar, but most of the group has a characteristic three-lobed lip at the bottom of the flower that closes in on the center.
  • Epidendrum orchids are persistent and often bloom several times over the season.
  • The plants are used to low nutrient sites and can live on just bark or grow in pots with the orchid medium.
  • The plants are amazingly adapted to a variety of conditions.

SOIL REQUIREMENT

  • They can live on just bark or grow in pots with an orchid medium.

FEEDING/FERTILIZER REQUIREMENT

  • Fertilize with orchid food every two weeks.

LIGHT REQUIREMENT

  • They prefer indirect bright light but perform nicely in brighter to dimmer conditions.

WATER REQUIREMENT

  • Water about once per week and keep the plant moist but the surface of the bark media should not be soggy.
