    I think the PB are too large for the tampensis that some define "miniature" I have one that I had for a year not sure if blooming size but the PB are definitely smaller.

    It very likely could be an hybrid.
    I was thinking Enc Cindy as well.



    I wish people would in generally not just post a photo of the flower but also of the whole plant. A flower itself is sometimes not sufficient to identify a plant.

    Thanks for all your responses!
    @Stef...I agree, but so many times I see people saying that it has to be a close-up of the flower.
    @Betty...Thanks

    Jason, I think you did a very good job taking the photos of this encyclia. Seeing the WHOLE plant helps, but there is nothing like seeing a close up of the orchid for identification purposes. Good luck...whatever it is, it's very pretty! Betty :-)

    I meant that if you take and post a close up of the flower you can take a picture of the whole plant and show it as well.
    This may look like an E. tampensis but the plant looks larger. I like to see the roots, teh medium used, the conditions etc...
    The flower may be the best factor for identification but sometimes it may not be sufficient.
    Anyway it looks great and great deal. I really like Encyclias. I hope i can make my tampensis and bractescens bloom. Just found a close out E. Cindy ina bag discounted for 2.50...! we can compare when it blooms if it may be very close.

    @Stef...I didn't mean to sound stand-offish. I hope I didn't come across that way.
