In this paper we prove the existence of uncountably many indecomposable continua in the dynamics of complex exponentials of the form $E_\lambda (z) = \lambda e^z$ with $\lambda > 1/e$. These continua contain points that share the same itinerary under iteration of $E_\lambda$. These itineraries are bounded but consist of blocks of $0$’s whose lengths increase, and hence these continua are never periodic.
