Diachea leucopodia

These skinny little 'matchsticks' are not nearly so attractive as my previous example of this species (click here) but are interesting nevertheless.  An orchid fancier brought in his precious seedling with some concern about this 'thing' growing all over it.  So he was very relieved to know that it was of no concern and he could either wash it off or it would dry up and disappear and not to worry if it returned.
