Dockrillia bowmanii

Dockrillia bowmanii

Dockrillia bowmanii

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

The leaves are semi-pendulous giving this orchid an untidy appearance. The leaves are shallowly grooved and grow to 15cm long by 4mm thick.  The flower is about 25mm across and is green or yellowish green with a white ruffled labellum.

This orchid cannot be confused with any other orchid when in flower.  When not it flower, the plant is similar to Dockrillia schoenina, but D. schoenina can be distinguished by its deeply grooved leaves and much more erect habit.
