    Lovely! I do love this Encyclia. I am fascinated by the variance within this so-called species, which is actually a hybrid swarm whose original parentage is long lost. I love how even the fragrance varies, but somewhat follows the form. One of mine has a similar form to yours, with narrow petals and sepals and tessellated lip. I also noticed that the ones with these type blooms also have more elongated pseudobulbs. And they smell much more vanilla/sweet, as opposed to the other tampensis I have which smell more typical Encyclia, which I would describe as floral and only slightly sweet. What does your smell like during the day?

    Beautiful Branka. I did not realize how yellow the petals on these blooms can be. AL

    Well, it is just quite time since it has withered so I cant smell it, but as I can remember I detected nice, sweet smell only early in the morning. I love it too!
