I have seen an orchid...impossibly high in a tree, i used to think perhaps a brassavola (it has long ish hanging leaves, grows on the underside of the branch and appears brass(y)), but i never saw any flowers and it was too high and not in my yard so i just always stared as i walked by and checked for any clues

recently, as i learned more about orchids and such i realized it was probably an encyclia that happens to be hanging down and it is so far up that i could easily miss the flowers.

well on a baby walk the other day i was looking at tree bark and i saw something that was IMMEDIATELY apparent it was not a tilly.....i got closer and confirmed it


you can see there is also another baby on the right under the other plant root

this is the top edge of a large knot from a 20-30 inch branch that broke off


here is the other plant- the zoom makes it unbearable so this is as close as i could get it

the two are about 50 feet apart laterally and 30 apart vertically.....easily covered by pollen

That's great! I wonder whether the drip irrigation tubing is for the plant?

Most likely

I had never heard that term so I looked it up. Awesome
There are a lot of ficus and vines called that so I suspect it is

One difference I do see is this root is more draped over the host tree than latching on and I suspect it may be another semi parasitic plants

love to see blooming local tampensis in situ, after living in South Fla for many years I have seen many tampensis in bloom and unfortunately many are now gone. They are easy to spot, The first 2 weeks in June are prime time to spot them if you know what kind of tree they like. Its a treat to go hunting for them in parking lots and easy to access locations.

thank you for posting, next year I will mark the calendar and visit my old stomping ground and go take some pics.
