    Nice set of Encyclia! I have one that should be blooming anytime now. I love the way you set them together.

    Oh Betty; I have been waiting for these! Not only do they look great, but I am sure they have a fragrance that helps make your day. I try not to sound imposing in my opinions, but I think Encyclia's should be as common/popular as Phalaenopsis in the orchid world. I think many people would come to love their beauty, relative ease of care, and all the different fragrances that are so enticing! AL

    Don, it is another one of my "experiments!" It is actually growing in that small white rock that anyone can buy at the big box stores. Seems to like it...Betty :-)

    Jordan, don't be jealous...I believe that these are much too simple for you. But I must say they are very rewarding orchids to grow in a warm climate. Thanks to all of you for the wonderful compliments...encyclias seem to really like the conditions that I can provide for them...Now, I am waiting on an encyclia phoenicea to bloom. It has a long, thick spike, and is supposed to smell like CHOCOLATE! yumm, I can hardly wait...Betty :-)
