Cymbidium macrorhizon / Mayaran マヤラン

Mayaran, or Cymbidium macrorhizon, is a rootless/leafless saprophyte in the orchid family; the plant body, which is nothing but a stem, ordinarily lives underground, getting water and nutrients from some fungus. As the flowering season (July-August) comes, it makes a 10-30cm flower stalk and sets a few flowers on it. The peduncle looks green but not due to the chlorophyll pigments. Bloom time: July-August.
