We could write
volulmes about this wonderful orchid. It has been popularized by book
and movie...and heres a chance to grow it in your own environment!
Our first introduction to it was in 1984 and it has drawn our attention
since. Looking at the blossom, it is easy to see that this orchid is a
relative of the African angraecoids. It is, however, a new world orchid.
It is perhaps best known as Polyradicion or Polyrrhiza lindenii but is
most accurately called Dendrophylax lindenii. Though certainly not the
easiest to grow of the genus, weve found success by using very clean
water with a full complement of micronutrients. A daily misting in our
greenhouse keeps root tips green and growing year round.
