This is a most amazing orchid. The plant is not much to look at but it shoots out this many feet long stem with this delicate flower(s) on the end. [Linked Image]

Beautiful Harriette......I assume that is on your property?

I'm happier than a pig in s__t...a foot on the sand...and a Belikin in my hand!

This orchid is one of the few that does well in the harsh, salt-air condition of the cayes. I bought a hunk of tree with a bunch of these orchids growing on it from the guy who sells coconut water at the roundabout on the Western Highway. I've gotten some beautiful blooms off it!

Al - Yes - I have a lot of these. The parent plant is not much to look at but the flowers are exotic. They do like to grow on dead branches but will survive on live ones as well.
