    Default Epicat. Rene Marques 'Flame Thrower'

    This is one of my favorite orchids. It is one of the first I bought when I decided to expand my interest beyond phals. It reliably blooms for me every Jan/Feb with several clusters of 3 to 5 blooms. It decided to suprise me with a June bloom this year. Granted it is only one cluster of two blooms but it still brings me pleasure. I also like it because the blooms are long lasting.

    Very nice. I've oft been tempted to buy one but they get too tall for my space.

    Thank you . One nice thing is that they bloom while they are still small. You could grow it until it got too large for you and then take a start and sell or trade the larger plant. Where there is a will there is a way. LOL

    Bill,
    Very interesting and unusual color combination.
    First time I did see this kind of Epicattleya.
    Do you know the parents of this cross. Can't find it on the www.

    Such lovely colors - the green is SO green, the yellow is SO yellow, and the pink - Wow!! I can see why it's a favorite - and then you got the bonus flowers in June. Woo-hoo!

    I love this orchid, Bill. I hope mine blooms again soon. It has already bloomed earlier this year, but I wouldn't mind it doing it again. Nice growing sir!!

    Cheers,
    BD
