Epidendrum radicans

Orchid Tip

If new leaves do not grow as large as old leaves, the plant may need more light. Gradually move the orchid into brighter light.


Insufficient light is one the chief causes of orchids failing to bloom. Different kinds of orchids need different levels of light. If an orchid's leaves are light green, it is probably receiving enough light to bloom. Dark green leaves may indicate that the plant needs brighter light.
