Orchid Species: Oeceoclades mackenii

Kew currently accepted name is Oeceoclades maculata

Oeceoclades mackenii is an orchid species identified by (Rolfe ex Hemsl.) Garay & P.Taylor in 1976. Culture information and photos for this orchid are commonly detailed under the currently accepted name of Oeceoclades maculata.
Oeceoclades (Oecl.)
(Rolfe ex Hemsl.) Garay & P.Taylor
ORIGIN: This is a pantropical, medium sized, erect, cool to hot growing terrestrial orchid found from southern Florida, Bahamas, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Haiti, Jamaica, Cayman Islands, Lewwards, Puerto Rico, Trinidad & Tobago, Windwards, Guatemala, Belize, Costa Rica, Panama, French Guiana, Surinam, Guyana, Venezuela, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia, Brazil, Paraguay, Argentina, Bennin, Ghana, Ivory Coast, Liberia, Nigeria, Senegal, Sierra Leone, Togo, Guinea Bissau, Burundi, Central African Republic, Congo, Gabon, Gulf of Guinea Islands, Zaire, Sudan, Uganda, Tanzania, Malawi, Angola, Mozambique, Zimbabwe, Natal South Africa, Mauritius, Madagascar and Reunion in leaf litter below trees and on rocky scrub slopes at elevations up to 1200 meters.

DESCRIPTION: This is a pantropical, medium sized, erect, cool to hot growing terrestrial orchid with dark greenish brown, lightly sulcate, ovoid pseudobulbs carrying a single, apical, suberect to spreading, coriaceous, oblong-elliptic, green mottled with lighter green leaves. It has nonfragrant flowers that appear in the late summer and fall on a basal, erect, to 12 long, racemose, laxly 12 or more flowered and needs even watering and fertilizer year round. All the photos are from plants that have appeared on my property in the Florida Keys. It has really become quite common in the right areas all through the Florida Keys.
