This is NOT Epidendrum floribundum. I have a similar clone, and had wondered its validity. I believe Dr. Patricia Harding asked Dr. Rudolph Jenny, who confirmed that it was very likely Epicyclia Belmont [Epi. paniculatum (syn. Epi. floribundum) x Enc. tampensis]. Here's a good picture of Epicyclia Belmont: https://www.flickr.com/photos/55267657@N04/5873024770
