O.K., let me clarify. I would consider any orchid that flowers nine or more months out of the year "everblooming"

Thanks for all the responses so far.

I have a large den antennatum that has been blooming since April. It usually has about 8 spikes going at any time.

What about the Oncidium papilio. That's a sequential bloomer, Mine has been at it since Oct /07. Currently two flowers open, 2 spikes waiting to unfurl

Oh yeah.. thanks for bringing that up Lecent! Buy a psychopsis in bloom and it'll stay in flowers for YEARS!!

quiltingwacko, hey neighbour, we are both on the west coast and our conditions should be quite similar! I continually have phrag spikes and flower year-round. I have not had a single day since fall of last year without a phrag bloom in my place

OK, let me contribute: one that blooms at least 9 months of the year (I don't mean blossoms last that long) is Epidendrum ellipticum. It's pretty small but the bloom spike gets quite tall and keeps blooming while the new growths are maturing and getting ready to bloom. Evidence: That's a new spike on the left next to the blooming spike which will continue to elongate till it gets maybe 18" long. Blossoms last maybe 2 days. Here's a closeup Sorry, not fragrant!

I think what must be considered is the growing conditions these orchid have been raised in that allow them to bloom as long or as continuously as everyone has stated ..
I am sure there are some that wouldn't do as well for me in front of a window of western exposure indoors in the Northeast ...
Just a random thought to be considered

Spathoglottis is lovely. So is Ellipticum. I will have to have a serious talk with my phrag and tell it to get with the bloom program here. Actually it just quit. Had been blooming since April.
