And what's your fav encyclia for our hot climate? I love reds and oranges...
Ah, there runs the challenge. Got a bid on a encyclia cat cross that has some red in it.
Being a northern grower, sometimes you southerners are ahead of me by a couple of weeks with blooming.
Orange encyclias hybrids:
Epicat. Epiorange 'RIO' (Encyclia alata X Cattleya aurantiaca)
Lc. Pixie Gold X Encyclia alata
Epl. Peaches McClain (Laelia milleri X Enc. tampensis)
Enc. randii X Lc. Gold Digger
Ron, I wish I did!! But here's a pic.
WOW, it is a nice one Even nicer than I envisioned. I have both parents in my collection...may have to consider remaking that one someday
Yeah!!! Someone else has the fever too!I'm kind of on an encyclia-fever
Dallasgarden, if you are looking for a Epicyclia Mabel Kanda x Encyclia Cordigera PM me because I can tell you where I purchased mine. It should look like the one Ron posted a pic of with the green and pink bloom. Sometimes they call it Epidendrum Mabel Kanda or Encyclia Mabel Kanda, but I believe they are all the same thing.
I have a pic of the plant I purchased in the "not blooming" section. It comes in a 4" pot, but I wanted it mounted on cork.
I also have an Encyclia profusa that is a cross with a Sophronitis cinnabarina and the grower believes the blooms will be the shape of the profusa but the bright orange/red of the cinnabarina.
Lambert, posting pics of orange/red encyclias is only going to make my obsession worse! LOL
Still not mine but thought Shann would like to see what the pixiegold x alata looks like ...
