The most interesting of these orchids is the one hanging from the top, Dendrophylax funalis, Benth. (syn. Aeranthes funalis, Rchb. f., and Angraecum funale, Lindl.), being as near what might justly be called an Air-Plant as any to which the name is applied. It is quite leafless, and has no pseudobulbs. Oncidium triquetrum, R. Br., is the name of the small white and purple flower. The Calabash tree, Crescentia Cujete, Linn., a flower of which is here represented, produces a large fruit, the shell of which is used for various domestic purposes, see 144.
