    Default August Orchids In Fort Worth

    These three Orchids are the only bloomers I have had this summer.

    1 Zygonisia Cynosure (Not Sure Might be Cattleya Blue Hawaii) or Cattleya Walkeriana

    2 Encyclia Cochleatum (This beauty actually has been blooming since May and it is by far the most prolific Orchid I have ever had here in Fort Worth . No wonder it is the National flower of Belize.)

    Great photos, Buzz! Love the Grower Ramsey against the dark blue of the sky. Really well done!

    love the photos, but must confess, I'm partial to the Encyclia.

    Thanks Bedt. The Encyclia Cochleatum I have that I have on some type of "drift wood" may bloom around 6-7 at a time for 6-9 months. I have never had any flower that would do that.

    Very lovely group. I actually got to see the encyc. growing wild in Belize this year when I was there. It puts on quite a show. Thanks for sharing.

    Ditto but the blue catt is lovely and the onc pic is eye popping. Good growing.
