    Default Encyclia (Euchile) citrina

    Here is my Encyclia citrina. The powerful scent of jasmine/honey/citrus is heavenly! I can smell this ten feet away. The most intriguing thing is there is a bee who decided to just stay in the flower from sunrise to sunset.

    WOW

    I have always wanted one of these but from what I understand its a cold weather orchid. What temps are you growing it in?

    That is just an amazing looking plant and I am so envious! Good growing!

    Default Growning Tips

    I've have this plant for almost 10 years. It's mounted on a piece of 18" long log. It's growing under a shade cloth. In then winter, temp can go down to low 40F. Summer can be in the low 100F. I water it every three-day with R/O water. I don't use fertilizer at all. Hope this help. And more pictures!

    Shannara,
    I think so-cal environment might be really similar to its native Mexico. When it gets super hot I do water more during this time.
