Galeola septentrionalis / Tsuchiakebi ツチアケビ

Galeola septentrionalis, a saprophytic orchid species lacking chlorophyll, occurs in the forests in mountainous regions. Stems are thick, yellowish-brown, growing up to 1m in height, making many branches. Scale-like stuff on the stems has degenerated leaves, which makes it feel weird. Upper units each set 3cm long yellow-brown flowers in a racemose manner. Bloom time: June-July.
