Jingle Bell Orchid (Dendrophylax porrectus)
Jingle Bell Orchid Seedling (Dendrophylax porrectus)
Another very rare sight! Three seedling jingle bell orchids with vestigial leaves and recognizable epiphytic roots. These were found in an area with very many young pop ash trees with at least 200 established jingle bells growing on them. Soon these leaves will disappear and in time will become the normal leafless tangles of roots common to both of Florida's Dendrophylax orchids.
