those are most likely Spiranthes odorata.

To answer the question further...most of Florida's orchids are terrestrials or semi-terrestrials.

Hi Dave

I have found most of the Harrisella's on the branches of cypress up here in Pasco County. I hear of them occuring in old orange groves and other smaller tree and shrub species. Have you found them on other species than cypress?

I didn't pay much attention to the type of trees these where on but I think they may have been a pond apple. I mostly find them on Cypress as well.

here in central FL, the best trees for Dendrophylax porrectus (aka Harrisella porrecta) are eastern redcedar.

Thanks Prem

I guess I will have to add cedar to the trees to check here in Pasco County. I have heard they may also be on some of the coastal species of shrubby trees (Mangrove?) I guess I will have to look a little more closely for this plant elsewhere.

I guess I will have to add cedar to the growing list for D.porrecta to be on. I have also heard that they may occur in some coastal shrubby trees (Mangroves?) as well so I will have to start looking a little closer for this elusive little plant.
