    Default E. tampensis in the wild

    Connie and I viewed a property that had an amazing spring running through it. We had a history lesson from the owner of the property, on how the Indians used the spring and were they camped. All fascinating.
    The reason we were there was to view a live oak that I swear had several hundred clumps of E. tampensis all over it. I was speechless. I've seen it growing wild in Tampa and St. Pete but never like this. We were losing daylight when I took the photos. I'm going to go back and take pictures as this is tampensis time to bloom. I imagine they are all in low spike.

    Not far, Zain. In fact this is growing in a yard. The owner never knew what they were. This was a Connie score. She found this simply amazing tree.

    Wow that great, I still remember Connie posted the same tree when she was visited a weeks ago. Looking forward the blooms.

    Awesome seeing orchids growing in-situ like this. Encyclia tampensis is a great orchid to grow in your collection too. We have an alba version that I love.

    cheers,
