Epigenium zebrinum – 365 days of orchids – day 1051

This dramatic species is found in Malaysia, Borneo and Sumatra and we have seen it high on trees exposed to good light. It is easily distinguished from Bulbophyllum and Coelogyne by its two chunky leaves (just like our epigeniums at home)

We have seen plants growing at Semenggoh and Santubong both at around 200m altitude and so this is definitely a species for warm growing conditions.
