    This is the most colorful I have seen yet. Love that purple going to green. Could you possibly private message me as to where you purchased this? I would be most interested to know. Thanking you in advance. AL

    Yes, Epidendrum was changed to Encyclia back in 1980 something i think, very overdue change! then Encyclia was changed about two years ago for this one to Prosthechea

    I prefer the old Encyclia, but to me, Epidendrum just does not fit this alien!

    now i have to wait for mine to rebloom!

    I love this orchid. I managed to obtain the alba version a while ago, hope to flower it soon.

    I would love someone to let me in on the secret to blooming these lovely things?? I bought one in bloom. It bloomed nicely for a couple months. Then nothing....i've seen new growths come several times, get a tiny sheath then nothing else. Your pictures make me want to go have a little talk with mine...

    So beautiful.... I had a chance of grabbing one of these before but the price was too steep for me.... I still hope someday I would be able to add to this my collection.
