What is Epidendrum falcatum

Epidendrum falcatum (synonym: Coilostylis falcata) is an evergreen perennial orchid species endemic to Mexico, belonging to the family Orchidaceae and the genus Epidendrum. In its native habitat of Mexico, it thrives on rocky outcrops and cliffs in low to subalpine cloud forests. It is closely related to the Cattleya genus.

This species features short, spindle-shaped pseudobulbs from which pendulous, linear-lanceolate, sharp, sickle-shaped leaves emerge.

From May to October, it produces racemose inflorescences that hang down from the tips of the pseudobulbs, bearing up to three large flowers per stem. The flowers bloom at night, are pollinated by insects, and emit a fragrance reminiscent of jasmine or soap to attract pollinators.
