    Default Summer 2012 acquisitions

    Greetings all I was at the Shore Orchid Festival again in NJ and bought a few more orchids to add to my collection:

    1. Encyclia cochleata. I'm excited as I bought this with only one bud. Now there's one behind the flower and a second spike has started to emerge from that bottom right bulb. I've also read somewhere that the name has changed for this plant. Can someone confirm?

    2. I think this is also of the Encyclia type. I saw the grower's show plant and needed to have one. I remember the flowers being a dark shade of red, almost brown. There was a hint of peach and pink if I remember correctly. An internet search makes me think it looks closest to Encyclia alata but I won't know for sure until I get it to bloom ::crosses fingers::

    I noticed something black growing on that middle bulb. Is it mold? If so, what should I do?

    3. Had to indulge myself and get some mounted plants. We have (L-R):
    a. Laelia virens
    b. Cischweinfia sheehaniae
    c. Encyclia bractescens

    4. Neofinetia falcata. The smell of this one got me! I can't wait for this to bloom.

    Very nice choices, indeed. I've been wanting an Enc bractescens for a while now. Oh, and your cochleata is now considered a Prosthechea cocleata, a nice specimen too!
    Cheers,
    Tony
