    flowered a month earlier this year, 5 flowers, same color, same incredible scent. compared to the other encyclias i have, the flowers are pretty big. if you only grow one encyclia, this is the one!

    Not only beautiful, but super healthy. I need to move my Cordegeria's to even brighter light on the north side of the green house. They hang high now and I would swear their getting enough direct light, but they disagree by growing well then no blooms. Other Encyclia's seem to need less light to flower (Other than Cordegeria's). I can never argue with an orchid. I always lose! AL

    in winter, mine gets direct sun until almost 11am at the peak of winter. in summer, shaded, but very bright light. in winter the leaves can get a reddish tinge. this pattern somewhat i think mimics a deciduous forest. or near a riverbed. dendrobiums like this amount of light too, but my vandas would get burned. they are shaded more than my encyclias. i have built another orchid tree below this encyclia. it is the top of the tree... a few other encyclias, and cattleya relative are it he tree with it. i am considering another tree next to it, more shaded, to hold my other encyclias, the cockleshell types and some epidendrums. that is an enc alata below it in the picture. below that is the a hybrid of the two. it has not flowered yet, so i have no idea what it will look like. i got the alata in flower, have not rebloomed it yet.

    Hmmm very nice , must get 1.I do like Encyclia's but my alta seems to be a bit finicky when it comes to flowering.This year i was amazed to not only see the psuedo bulb that grew during the winter in my growroom produce a spike but last years psuedo bulb is also producing a spike.Will be a few months before fully out in flower , should be quite a show.Will be interesting to see how tall the spike grow.

    you know, when i bought this plant, it had only 4 bulbs, it was a young blooming sized plant, and every single bulb had a blooming stem, even the little ones that looked way too small to flower had a few each... i had assumed it was treated with some sort of hormone, but maybe not?
