Native to the tropical regions of Central and South America, this epiphytic orchid typically grows on trees or rocks, using its roots to anchor itself in its habitat.
The flowers of Epidendrum ciliare are small, with greenish-yellow petals and a slightly fragrant scent. They form in clusters along the elongated stems. This orchid prefers bright, indirect light and moderate humidity. Proper watering and a well-draining orchid mix are essential for its growth. As with most orchids, maintaining a consistent care routine and providing appropriate conditions will help ensure the health and vitality of Epidendrum ciliare.
