I acquired this Epidendrum radicans as a "bonus orchid" when I purchased Cookara Bill several years ago. When I got it, it couldn't have been more than three inches tall, with a single bare root. Since then, it's grown to several feet in height; this plant is currently five feet tall counting the flower spike. Each spring, it put up a spike or two of brilliant orange flowers.
