just an observation, mostly the pictures i've seen of epicats that are actually encyclia hybrids take the color of the cattleya parent, i.e. pink/lavender. i have recently seen some photos of laelia/cattleya/encyclia hybrids and they had more range of colors, like white and lighter pinks and some orange shading... but in general, they look like an encyclia plant with little cattleya flowers. more substance than encyclia flowers, but the flowers themselves did not look like an encyclia. but the plants sure do.
