    Good question. I don't grow any encyclias, believe it or not. (I like HUGE flowers.)
    While there are lots of red epidendrums, I don't know of any true red encyclias.

    Ah, there runs the challenge. Got a bid on a encyclia cat cross that has some red in it.

    I checked today...my alata has a spike and should bloom for June 1 or so. The p-bulb and growths are pretty large on this species. I can't seem to bloom my cordigera and my cordigera alba. Do you have this species and when does it bloom for you?

    Being a northern grower, sometimes you southerners are ahead of me by a couple of weeks with blooming.

    That sounds like an interesting cross! Laurent, do you have this one in your collection? Do you have a pic of it?

    I'm kind of on an encyclia-fever
    Yeah!!! Someone else has the fever too!

    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
