    Cool Encyclia cochleata- First Blooming

    I bought this back in January and now it has opened a flower for me. I don't believe this plant has ever bloomed in the past.

    This is the first flower on the spike of which I hope will be many and just opened this morning. A faint fragrance is detectable. Hopefully it will become stronger. The other mature pb I think is getting ready to spike as well. There is one new growth that has formed since I moved it into s/h 2 months ago.

    This guy is now blooming on the growth from this season. So this is the second time this season it is in bloom. A new growth has already started. And grown in s/h.

    I have 3 open flowers at one time. The other blooming as single flower at a time was open.
