Photo This reed stem Epi grows in dense clumps, and to our knowledge is a near-miniature. The largest plant we've grown is 12" tall. The short spikes eminate from the top of the plant, with a cluster of variously colored pink blooms, generally shading from light to dark. The lip edge is fringed white, the throat has a yellow spot. We grow these in high light, 3500+ FC, intermediate temps of 60-90, keeping well watered in the growing season. In winter, air circulation is a must. While their water requirements dip in the winter, care must be taken not to dehydrate nor root rot the plants. Undo stress on the plant will invariably show up as black lesions on the leaves.
