    Thumbs up Enc. papillosa x Enc. randii

    This was quite pretty! Have 3 spikes on this plant that I just got from an order last week. Not detecting a scent, but sometimes a fragrance develops later on.

    I often find unusual combo's when it comes to Encyclias...always a surprise when they bloom!

    I love the lip!
    Me too...looks like it's painted on.

    Nice find!

    Try the scent again in the morning as I notice my Encyclias are fragrant in the morning, the scent is gone by noon.
