Orchids around the Yard. Male
Default November 21017 part 2

Some more from November's flowering orchids.

First a Epidendrum stamfordianum blooming at a friends house. I'm hoping she'll give me a cutting next year as these seem to deal fairly well with the dry season, so I could put it in a tree that I don't water.

Now to my garden. Here's a small Maxillaria that is blooming for the first time. I have a few that are fairly similar, yet slightly different. Maybe the species is just variable.

And a Epidendrum that has flowers identical to E. nocturnum, but has darker, almost purplish, leaves.

Well, It's been a while but here's a few that are currently blooming around my house.

p.s. if anyone knows what sort of Sobralia that final one might be let me know. It fell out of a tall tree a couple years ago in northern Costa Rica and has been a strong bloomer since it got established again at my place. But I'm not sure what species it is.

I've been playing around with cross-pollination now for a bit and you can just barely make out that bit of thread wrapped around the seed pod stem which is my marker that I crossed it with something else, some sort of Epidendrum I believe. I got probably close to a hundred seed pods in going at the moment. I'm curious to see if the hybrids will germinate in non sterile environment. Here's some from a red reed-stemmed Epidendrum that are soon to pop. The center one is hybrid pod, the other two pollinated on their own, so probably selfed.
