    Very nice! Just curious what scent your cross is? I have an Epi. floribundum, and think that the scent reminds me of green tea...

    I love this color combination too, and it makes this a pretty distinctive cross, though some of its offspring are nearly identical. And it grows like a weed. Very nice.

    Actually, this plant is also Mabel Kanda, but it is correctly Epicyclia Mabel Kanda, not Encyclia. That goes for yours too, espranch.

    Epicyclia Mabel Kanda is registered as (Encyclia cordigera x Epidendrum paniculatum). Epidendrum floribundum is considered a synonym for the accepted name Epidendrum paniculatum, and of course the order of the species in the cross makes no difference in the name, so Epicyclia Mabel Kanda all around.
