    Default Epicyclia Mabel Kanda x Enc. Cordigera

    I saw this at an orchid show and finally tracked one down. It came in a 4" pot but I wanted it mounted on cork bark like the one I saw. It took awhile to rinse and loosen the roots from its original orchid bark mix, but man did it have a ton of healthy roots!



    I used mostly fishing line and a small piece of twine to hold it on. Since I don't use sphagnum on my orchids I put coco fiber behind the orchid to help retain some moister. Hopefully the birds won't pick it all off to use in their nests.

    I hope I did okay since this was my first time attaching an orchid onto anything. *Crossing my fingers*.

    This looks like a really healthy plant, I am curious to see what the blooms will look like. Good job mounting it !

    You can find a picture of the bloom online if you type in the name. The petals are green and the lip is very pink. I think there might be a spike coming...hard to tell just yet but I am hopeful.

    Thanks!

    Beautiful magenta colored bulbs produce nice branching spays of smaller,nickel sized green flowers set off with cheerful pink lips. Very fast growing and easy to flower.
