    Oeceoclades maculata...

    Hello Friends,

    Here's a few shots of one of my favorite Fl. native orchids, Oeceoclades maculata.

    The leaf patterns and lightly-scented flowers are truly magnificent and it grows very well in dead sphagnum moss.

    Happy Growing!

    Brian.




    Here's a shot with flash, to highlight the leaf patterns a bit...

    Very nice Brian. Do you grow it like a typical temperate CP or is it more on the subtropical - tropical side?

    Thanks for the compliments everyone!

    Oeceoclades is semi-tropical in nature, but I have had it near freezing for very short periods.

    Kristoff, those Corallorhiza are lovely! Good luck wishing for leaves...
    Here in Fl, we have a smaller species known as Corallorhiza odontorhiza which is a much smaller form than the one you have up your way...

    Ours bloom here in August through October as well...

    Happy Growing,

    Brian.

    A cool thing about that species is that its native range runs from Africa to South America across the islands to Florida. I thought about getting one a few times back in my orchid growing days because of the leaves more than the blooms.
