Encyclia dickinsoniana

I have had this Encyclia dickinsoniana a short time. Justin left it with me when he downsized. I am happy to see it bloom so soon.

Encyclia dickinsoniana grows in Mexico down to Nicaragua in mountain forests at about 1000'. It is fragrant, warm to hot growing and blooms spring and summer.

  1. I think that is the most beautiful Encyclia I've seen! I hope you will have these on eBay... maybe next year. -Tina

  2. I'm so glad it bloomed for you. It looks gorgeous and I'm a little bit jealous. It was misidentified then? When it gets large enough to divide I definitely would like a division (I'll hopefully have space for it by then). You should post a picture of the entire plant.

    I've set up some terrariums in my apartment in Utah and am hopeful for success. It's still a small space, but enough for quite a few miniature species.

  3. The description at the link describes the flowers as "sourly fragrant". I'm having trouble imagining that one. Is that how you would describe it?
