    Nice one. One of my favorites. Love the color and how long it stays in bloom. Thanks for sharing yours with us.

    I looked this one up in Owiz to see if it had been named (it wasn't) but it was cool to see the two parents of this cross. It appears that this orchid hybrid took the white lip of E. randii and the green petals of Epi Mabel Kanda. Cool cross.

    cheers,

    Very pretty. I recently got an Epi Mabel Kanda in a swap, so I'm looking forward to its growing big and strong!
    Cheers,

    BTW. I'm finding a bit of confusion online as to the true genus of Mabel Kanda. Some places it is called Epidendrum, some Encyclia, and still others Epicyclia? (Mine came with a printed tag reading Enc. Mabel Kanda, which I know means nothing!). Not being a taxonomist, it sure looks like an Enc. but its a small plant yet.

    The correct name is Epicyclia Mabel Kanda (E. cordigera x Epi. densiflorum)
