Default discovered 17th population of Florida clamshell orchid

This Prosthechea cochleata var, triandra. var, triandra is the Florida variety with a more light purple lip. There are only 16 populations known to exist, now 17 lol. I checked on the gov records on which preserve this is found on and it is a completely new location. I found this on swamp ash when i went out looking for butterfly orchids, near this location i also found around 4 very large clumps of encyclia tampensis and 25 seedlings, the large ones are probably 15 plus years.
watch this facebook link which talks about the 16 th population being discovered, only 2 months old

If you want to see some encyclias let me know
please leave feedback, motivates me to post more

Wow, thats a cool find. Is it on iNaturalist? You could always obscure the location data if you are worried about that.

Default i am confused

could the plant i thought was the Prosthechea cochleata might be the Brassia caudata. Brassia caudata has not been seen in florida since 1990, who knows if might be seeing as if it was Prosthechea cochleata it was in a strange place.

I will look for more of that orchid seeing as when i find one butterfly orchid there are normally a bunch more in the surrounding area.

So I have a question. There is an orchid growing in a tree near my house. It is over 35’ in the air. I cannot imagine anyone would have planted it there. How or who can I contact to ask them if this is a local orchid and perhaps another discovery?

Do you have binoculars, or a telescope? You could compare it to online photos of Florida natives.

There is a Florida Native Plant Society.
