Dendrophylax (Polyradicion) lindenii

And finally I get to see this myth surrounded orchid in person. And I never realized it to be this big. It measures 14 cm from top to bottom! It begun to open yesterday morning and it took 26 hours for it to open fully. I suspect it to grow even bigger during the following days as most Angraecoids do.

In all the years he had been in Fakahatchee he had never seen the orchid. Oscar joined Mike and I as we headed off to see the orchid. This was my first experience…
