    Ksriramkumar, yours appears to be the E. cordigera var. rosea type. Is it fragrant? Very nice plant and blooms.

    My E. cordigera has the white lip with a single magenta dot on the lip (sometimes I do wonder if these are really the sames species, but in the books, they always are described that way). The blooms are closer together on mine, shorter inflorescence. The fragrance is an intense rose scent.

    The pic is not E.cordigera but a hybrid encyclia that may have cordigera in its breeding....and yes the white lipped with magenta spot is the typical form of E.cordigera...the confusing part is that it was called ''var randii'' and actually E.randii is a different species altogether that is found in a different range but has the overall same look and colour to the untrained eye...E randii has flatter sepals and petals and a larger size
