This plant, also known as the silver dollar orchid for the shape of it's pbulbs, is another that is native to Florida. I bought it last year and hung it over with the vandas. I hadn't paid much attention to it until it began growing three new pbulbs all at the same time this spring. To my suprise all three had sheaths that developed and I am in love with these tiny flowers. One set was opening before they were all the way out of the sheath. As they age the flowers begin turning a deep orange color, while the new flowers are yellow. This plant has been a nice suprise...and I love the tiny spotted flowers.
I never even knew this Encyclia existed until now Connie. This is fantastic! Love the looks of the actual plant also. AL
Wow I thought it is cornu cervi at first glance I like it congrats.
Thanks all...it has been a fun one to watch grow and bloom.
So healthy and well grown! Nice going, Connie.
Lovely plant and flowers.
Connie that is really a keeper ! I wonder if it has been used in hybrids with Cattleyas, I am thinking it will be a good parent to pass on those striking patterns.
Beautiful flowers ... unusually colorful for an Enc. How big is the plant, Connie?
