    Question Some orchid I've had for a while.

    I've had this orchid for some time now, but I don't know what it is. I think it's an epidendrum; what do you think?





    Thanks!

    Could be a reed stem epidendrum.

    I think it could likely use more light. Considering your local, try hardening it off and putting it outside. In much of California, reedstem epidendrums are grown outside year round.

    Ok, I'll try to harden it off the best I can.

    Looks to me like a dendrobium, which grows well in a lot of light.

    So far, I'm going with epidendrum Sorry, but the psurdobulb is too thin to be a dendro.

    It looks like Epidendrum radicans http://www.tropicos.org/Image/100112677 and http://www.orchidspecies.com/epiradicans.htm. It needs much more light to grow well and bloom.
