Default Blooming (micro-mini)Harrisella porrecta

Hi all, I found many of these tiny leafless twig epiphytic orchids but this is my first time finding some in bloom. Actually there were 4 blooming plants with a combined 9 flowers. The flowers are so tiny, it make's it very difficult to get a flower in focus. Excellent day.

Dave, how can you tell the roots from the Ghosts? They look the same to me.

Ya know, you got me thinking, and I think I may have seen some nearby. Is this the time of year they bloom?

First thing is the size. The Ghost are much fatter. But the tell tail signs is the ghost roots have white marks like tracks that run parellel with the roots. I have a Vanda with similar markings on the roots when wet. Here's a small ghost's roots you can see the markings.

It's very possible, They bloom from Aug. to Nov. There was one plant next to these that had set seed pods.

Lovely photos, Dave! Those roots are so impressive! We don't have any epiphytic, native orchids up here, so it's always a nice treat to see pictures of them in situ

Unless your looking for them you'll never see them. Once you notice tiny thin gray root's you then look for a center and if you look at enough tree's (thousands) you will eventually find them.

Are there any terrestrial orchids found in Florida or are they all epiphytic?
