    Default Epidendrum floribundum x Encyclia cordigera in bloom

    I love green orchids and this cross has a very pleasant light green sepals and petals. The lip , however,is a light purple. The flowers open with a light brown mask on the ends of the tepals but this disappears after 2-3 days. the flowers are very pleasantly scented especially in the mornings. The flowers aen't big measuring 4cm across.

    I have epi atroniceum 'Mother's Day' x enc. Cordigera 'Chocolate Violets') in my sleeping area and it is a pleasure to awaken to the wonderful smell. I love the green on yours.

    That is a very beautiful orchid, Yew. I have one which is starting to bloom ( only three flowers are open ) but is a different cross. Looks much the same; I will take a pic. when more blossoms are open. It is called Encyclia Mabel Kanda "Miyao" Betty

    Oh, that is so nice! What a pretty orchid. I really like the purple color in the lip next to the green petals.

    Cheers,

    As always, your orchids are stunning Yew Sung. With your skill, I think even if I gave you a dead orchid, you could bring it back to life. Your Epidendrum floribundum x Encyclia cordigera sure is a rare beauty, and scented too.
