    Default Encyclia parviflora

    Hi,

    i posted this one exactly a year ago, this time with better plant/spike shots, and who says that the background curtain should be ironed, haha? I kinda like the wavy ocean looks, and it's serves as an excuse too!

    Cheers!

    Very fine, very nice flowers Ron. I wish more of my Encyclia's would follow this example. Any scent? AL

    Hi Al,
    yes, there is slight fragrance, it's hard to detect on a single bloom, but the entire spike seems to make up for it.

    I really like the bloom contrasting with the black background in the last photo. It is such a healthy orchid and what a nice spike! Is that spike like 4 feet long? WOW!

    cheers,

    It is that time of year, my Encyclia are either spiking or blooming. I don't have this one...but I may find one as I like the dark color. Very nice!
