Dendrophylax porrectus a leafless orchid growing on a camasey tree in the Rio Abajo forest

This orchid is native of Puerto Rico.  This orchid has no leaves just roots joined by a very short stem.  It produces tiny inconspicuous green flowers.  It can often be found growing on the branches of wild guava and camasey trees.
