    Default Encyclia tampense 'alba' orchid in bloom

    I probably should have waited till more of this orchid blooms were open before posting, but I just wanted to share it. This guy is growing in a tiny pot, but has four or five spikes. It is very compact and Shann would love the p-bulbs because they are like perfect little marbles.

    Anyway, here is my

    That's so cute Bruce. I think I'm liking green flowers more and more.

    Well, I had to get a little creative with the photos since it was close to sunset here. I hope these will do. The pot is only a 2.5 or 3 inch pot. I thought it was a four incher, but I guess it is not that big yet. I put a US quarter in the photo to help with scale. A quarter is about 1 inch across.

    Yes, those are two of my dogs. We have four. One Great Dane and three hounds. The two in the photos are the ladies. (Of course they snuck into the photo..lol) I have one kitty left, but he lives in the house. He is 16. His mate, Puss, died about a month ago of renal failure. She was also 16. I also have a blue and gold macaw to keep me company. lol.

    Default new video of this encyclia in bloom

    Here is a video I made of this Encyclia tampense orchid in (almost) full bloom. I really need to invest in a good video camera for this stuff. My little point and shoot camera doesn't always like to stay in focus as I move around. LOL. Anyway, I hope you enjoy seeing the plant and blooms.
