If you're a fan of Encyclia and Brassavola crosses, then get ready to be mesmerized by the beauty of our unique hybrid - the Encyclia phoenicea x Brassavola nodosa! This stunning orchid promises to grace your space with breathtaking blooms reminiscent of the beloved Bepi.Phoenix, a gorgeous combination of Enc. phoenicea and B. nodosa.

Encyclia phoenicea is a Caribbean gem renowned for its radiant, wide-spread flowers that exude a strong fragrance of chocolate and vanilla, making your living space an aromatic paradise. The flowers have an incredible longevity, often lasting for a month or more, allowing you to revel in their beauty and fragrance for an extended period.

Our primary hybrid inherits the best qualities from both parent species. Encyclia phoenicea, with its fifty striking flowers per inflorescence, promises to be a magnificent sight. As this hybrid matures, you can expect it to become a striking specimen plant adorned with hundreds of chocolate-colored flowers, creating a truly breathtaking display.

Let's not forget about Brassavola venosa, which contributes its own unique charm to the hybrid. The flowers of Brassavola venosa closely resemble those of Brassavola nodosa, boasting raised veins or ridges on the lip that set them apart. Just like its B. nodosa parent, Brassavola venosa blooms primarily in the spring, and in some cases, it may surprise you with a second round of blooms during the year.

Cultivating this primary hybrid is a delight, especially if you're already familiar with growing Brassavola nodosa. Provide your Encyclia phoenicea x Brassavola nodosa with a warm to intermediate temperature environment, similar to what you'd offer B. nodosa. For optimal growth, mount or grow the orchid on plaques, allowing it to enjoy ample air circulation and bright light. During the active growing season, water generously, ensuring the roots have access to proper hydration. As the cooler months approach, reduce watering to mimic the plant's natural growth cycle.

With its hardy nature and straightforward care requirements, this primary hybrid is an ideal addition to both beginner and experienced orchid enthusiasts' collections. Its alluring beauty and tantalizing fragrance will undoubtedly captivate your senses and bring an aura of tropical elegance to your living space.

This is a blooming size in a 4" pot, about 1 to 2 years to bloom, grown from seed, limited!

Don't miss out on the opportunity to witness the magic of Encyclia phoenicea x Brassavola nodosa as it graces your home with its extraordinary blooms. Add this remarkable hybrid to your collection today and enjoy a splendid display of nature's artistry!
