While walking through the benches, this plant caught my eye. When we checked online what the flowers of this plant would look like we got so excited to see it’s THIS Epidendrum we took a picture of last time we were at Taylor Orchids!

(picture from Internet) The sheer size of this plant struck our interest. Checking the flowers online, we were hooked! We always wanted one of those Epidendrum pseudepidendrum and this is very close to that!
