    Default Lc. Secret Love x Enc. cordigera

    I am really loving this one more and more each day. The scent is a wonderful old garden rose scent that lingers all day. This is the first bloom for the plant with a spike of two blooms. The blooms have been out for almost three weeks and have maintained their substance and color. It is showing no signs of deterioration yet. Am definitely looking forward to future blooms as this plant matures.

    Very nice hybrid in terms of longevity, scent and substance, shame that it does not have multiple flowers on a long inflorescence, that character from the Encyclia parent would have been nice alongside these ones.

    Hi, Thanks. As I said it is it's first bloom and it does have two buds. Am hoping for a stronger show it next time in bloom.
