Introducing the stunning primary hybrid between Encyclia alata and Encyclia fowliei, a masterpiece of nature's artistry. This extraordinary orchid inherits the best of both parents, combining the fragrant allure of Encyclia alata with the exotic beauty of Encyclia fowliei.

Here's everything you need to know about cultivating this remarkable hybrid:

This primary hybrid exhibits a captivating blend of characteristics from its parent species. From Encyclia alata, it inherits tall, branching inflorescences adorned with 2-3 inch flowers. The petals feature a striking yellow hue with dark-chocolate tips, complemented by a vibrant yellow lip. Meanwhile, Encyclia fowliei contributes its large, spoon-shaped flowers with unique yellowish-green petals intricately veined with red-brown tessellation. The lip, small yet impactful, boasts a mesmerizing combination of orchid and magenta hues. 

Cultivation Tips: To cultivate this hybrid successfully, mimic the natural habitat preferences of its parent species. Provide bright, indirect light to encourage robust growth and blooming. Ensure proper air circulation to the roots by growing the plant on driftwood or in wooden baskets. It's crucial to allow the plant to dry out between waterings, as both parent species prefer a dry period. Maintain intermediate temperatures for optimal growth, mimicking the climate of coastal forests near the Atlantic coast, where Encyclia fowliei thrives.

Bloom Season: Expect this hybrid to grace your space with its magnificent blooms during the spring season, typically in October and November in its native Brazil. Anticipate a spectacle of color and fragrance that will captivate your senses and elevate your orchid-growing experience.

This is a blooming size in a 4" pot about 1 to 2 years to blooming size. Grown from Seed!
