    Thumbs up Enc. chapadensis

    Evidently this is a rare find. I could only find one picture of the bloom online so I hope its accurate. The bloom should have reddish brown sepals and petals while the lip will be pink.

    Anyone here have this plant in their collection?

    It is a rare one indeed, near extinction in Brazil. Nice find miss Shann!
    The plant should stay small but the flowers are supposed to be pretty big and fragrant.

    Well...no pressure there...lol. I simply must not allow this plant to ever die!

    Maybe one day it will be big enough for me to divide so I can share it with others.

    Very cool, especially if it is in danger of extinction. I love the round p-bulbs. Good luck with it!
