    Default Rare Encyclia

    I have a ton of an Encyclia called Enc chondylochilum. It's a small plant but puts out a good show of small brown flowers. I have pics of the plant and flower. I have not found much on the species and the plants I have came out of gary baker's collection. Many of his plants are very old and the names have changed on them several times. I do not know much about Encyclia and any info would be appreciated. here is the flower.

    also known as Encyclia (Prosthechea) livida. Here's a photo on Jay Pfahl's site:

    if you have a ton of it and feel a desire to share, I'd gladly take a piece. I'd even trade a hunk of Epidendrum magnoliae (syn. Epi. conopseum) for it.
