    Fantastic plant, Nat!!
    What a wonderful bright color!
    Too bad I cannot grow them in my hot conditions.

    Thanks Jason, Nat, and Tom!

    I hope it'll tolerate some summer heat as we're moving to Georgia in about 5 weeks and I'm loath to give this one up. I may grow it inside until the weather cools off and then try to keep it out for the winter. I've heard several anecdotes of people in Florida doing okay for a while with this species, but the story always ends badly...

    Very nice! Now by seeing the whole plant and all, i wonder how can it ever be a Encyclia?

    Thanks Eric, Ron, and Branka! Ron, if you turn it upside-down the pbulbs and foliage are very similar to most Encyclias, but the flowers do seem pretty different. This and its sister species mariae were lumped in Prosthechea for a while, but Kew recently accepted Withner's classification of these as a distinct genus. There's also been a splitting of the citrina taxon into at least two species, citrina and karwinskii, but I'm not really clear on the difference and I don't honestly know which one this is...
