    Default Encyclia mariae

    This is a small species from Mexico. It is 6 inches tall and produces 2 1/2 inch flowers with delicate fragrance. It grows in bright location and I keep it as moist as I can when it's actively growing, otherwise gets watered 3-4 times per week. My growing room has intermediate to warm temperature range. It is a slow grower for me. I've had it for about 5 years. It usually grows on every new growth.

    I fussed a lot with the light and background to get the details of its delicate flower. I hope you like it.

    My kitty was desperately competing for the camera trying to show off her whiskers, so you get to see her too.

    very nice!! the second picture is absolutely stunning. Mine normally blooms in April but hasn't bloomed for me this year. Maybe I still have a chance of it blooming.

    Very nice! I agree with Ron -- the 2nd pic is excellant!

    How long do the blooms generally last?

    Thank you. I am getting into experimenting with my camera, so it's good to hear you guys like the pictures.

    If I remember correctly the flowers last about 3 weeks.

    One of my most favorite encyclia species!!! Beautiful!!!

    However, I heard that this one and its sister species, Encyclia citrina have been grouped into a different genus, Euchile.

    Cheers. Hoa.

    Hoa, thanks for the info. Good to keep up with all the name changes.

    BTW, I have the up-side-down Enc. (Euchile) citrina too. It is a really interesting and pretty plant. I think all the Encyclias are good looking plants. I also have alata and cordigera. Enc. randii is on my wish list.

    OK, now it's starting to sound like an obsession.
