    Default Any one have information of an alba form of Enc. adenocaula?

    I purchaced this plant 5 years ago, and bloomed it for the first time this year. I was dissapointed in the colors, and am thinking it is an alba form, or a miss labled hybrid.

    Hmm, I just posted a picture of my Andendocarpa...and i'm thinking one of us has a cross. Your lip is way different and the little lobes around the middle part are totally different color too. Hmm.... Maybe one of the encyclia experts will chime in.

    I'm certainly no expert, but I have grown encyclias for many yrs. Does the flower have a sweet smell, and what is its width? How many flowers on the stem? How tall is the stem? Betty :-)
