Hello friends.

I'm new to this particular forum. To be frank, I rarely visit. Just thought 'why not I share' a couple of pictures here. I have this Epidendrum radicans since nearly 20 years. Both red and orange types. Both pictures are backlit by the afternoon sun.

Wow, MaypopLaurel. So nice to know. I'd have loved your responses/comments.
Here is the red and orange blooms side by side, taken today.

I second what Laurel said! That's another pair of plants we have in common too, though I think my orange one is Epi. schomburgkii, as it doesn't have the air root mass the red one does. I've had mine for around 30 years. We seem to have similar taste in plants as well as similar zones.

Dinu, I sometimes wander through DG forums in the middle of the night when I can't sleep. I stick to just a very few forums due to limited time time. Your colorful and creative life in India is a breath of fresh air. Very lovely Epidendrums too. Join in on the monthly threads too.

Occarol, yes you are right. Similar zones, similar tastes! Even Florida for that matter has similar plants. My Epidendrums have grown quite a lot. It's been with me since ... about 17-18 years and I really enjoy them. At one point of time, I almost threw the stick out as it would not grow! I had it in a small pot when I started it - a friend had given that. I suddenly decided to wait. And my patience has paid off.

Laurel [you remind me of my heroes - Laurel and Hardy], I'm also like you - sticking to a few forums and threads - limited time. Sleep routine is important. So I usually go to bed by 11 and get up by 6 am. Rarely I sit up after midnight. I also have this internet at my work desk. So I do these kind of things in the time I get. Thanks for your appreciation of my posts. Then you must see my blog. You may have quite a lot to get learned too. It is linked in my DG homepage here. Click on my name ...

Yesterday morning after a heavy shower the previous night, this raindrop was still thinking to fall to the ground.

Hello, Dinu and welcome back. Very pretty Epi's there. I have the orange one similar to yours. The red is just beautiful.

I'm looking for another color to tone down the orange as it is a bit over the top when they burst into bloom in the spring.

Very nice & welcome to the Orchid forum.
I love seeing what others have blooming. Fills in the void when mine aren't.

Ya, ya, OCCAROL. Really busy. The garden journal is only a tip of the iceberg. Did you get to see my new blog on garden? I have just started it... will be posting often. Notice my junk blog also linked at the side. It may be interesting too.

Thanks Qwilter. I've another orchid that should bloom in two months. Will add it up here. It's purple in colour and yet to be identified. I had posted it before but none were able to identify.
