This unusual Epidendrum orchid is easy to look after and will produce delicate yet vibrant pink flowers for many weeks. They are epiphytic and can commonly be found attached to trees or in rock crevices in tropical countries such as Brazil and Central America.

These orchids like some light but prefer to be out of direct sunlight - a bright room or east facing windowsill is perfect. They also will be happiest in a warm room, although they can tolerate temperatures down to 10°C. Being epiphytic they can absorb moisture from the air and so do well in kitchens and bathrooms.

How often you need to water will depend on the room conditions. Typically, about half a teacup a week in the summer and less in the winter but make your own judgement, by feeling the weight of the pot. Try feeling the weight when dry and when well-watered and then try and keep it half-way in between, and do make sure that they are not soggy. Water from the top and let the excess drain out through the lightweight compost.

Fertilize with orchid food every two weeks through the summer but reduce this to every 4 to 5 weeks through the winter.

Cut off the spent flower stems and with luck you will find the plant blooming again in a few months.

Orchids like to be pot bound, so your Epidendrum will be happy in its pot for a couple of years. After this time, it would be good to refresh the potting medium. Use an orchid mix and a pot just big enough to fit the coiled roots into.

Problem Solving:

The most common problem with orchids is overwatering, so keep them quite dry and never allow the roots to sit in water.
