Dockrillia dolichophylla

Dockrillia dolichophylla

Dockrillia dolichophylla

This epiphyte or lithophyte grows in the rainforest verges around Brisbane where it hangs conspicuously from the trees.

The leaves are pendulous and ungrooved and grow to 100cm long by 6mm thick.  The flower is up to 50mm across and is yellow with purple striations towards the centre.

The only other orchid which is similar is Dockrillia teretifolia which can be distinguished by its smaller white flowers, its much branched zig-zag stems and its lack of aerial roots.
