REED ORCHID:  ( Epidendrum) is commonly known as the Reed-Stem Orchid.  This group of orchids produce clusters of smaller flowers and is probably the easiest orchid to grow.  It flowers on and off all year with bright orange and reddish-purple blossoms.   It thrives in partial sun and produces plenty of flowers,  in the right conditions.   It propagates easily and requires little care.  It can be an outdoor or indoor plant.
