Sarcochilus japonicus / Kayaran カヤラン

 
Sarcochilus japonicus is an evergreen perennial orchid occurring on trunks, bough, or even twigs, emerging many roots at the plant base, which sustains the body hanging down. The lanceolate, 2cm-long leaves are distichous, arranging in two vertical rows. From the axil, there emerges a slender stalk with yellow flowers. The sepals measure 7mm long, the side petals a bit shorter, the lip sack-shaped with some purple-brown spots inside.
