Epidendrum macrocarpum is a captivating orchid species known for its large, showy flowers and unique growth habit. Native to Central and South America, it typically grows on trees or rocky surfaces. The plant produces pseudobulbs that can vary in size and shape, and from these pseudobulbs emerge tall flower spikes.

The flowers of Epidendrum macrocarpum are the highlight of this species. They are often quite large and can range in color from shades of white, pink, lavender, to even yellow. The lip of the flower is often contrasting in color and shape.

Cultivating Epidendrum macrocarpum requires providing it with bright but indirect light to encourage blooming. It's essential to allow the growing medium to dry out between watering to prevent root rot. This orchid appreciates humidity, so occasional misting or placing a tray of water nearby can be beneficial.
