    Cool Encyclia Alata, Paph Amelia and Psychopsis Mariposa Alba

    Encyclia Alata has two spikes this year and once again I remember why I love these flowers so much. The scent is like root beer or Dr. Pepper soda. My little fuzzy, Paph. Amelia Hart Alexander is once again blooming, as it the Alba Mariposa. The last two plants always amaze me as they are staying alive and blooming. lol My Encyclia section is really going like gangbusters. I have roughly 7-10 of them in spike or blooming right now. It's getting more colorful on the back porch every day.

    Nice sunny alba Psychopsis you have there! I do enjoy seeing the Encyclia like alata ... just wish they didn't get so big.

    Considering how many are sitting on shelves on back, that would be about the only way I would get to take a vacation! lol Let someone come stay at my home and care for the 'chids while I travel the roads.
