    I know, I know... probably reclassified at least 2 times, but I'm keeping it as an Encylia.
    this is a recent purchase, so no credit for blooming it. I hear it is a cool grower so hopefully i wont' DIMP it in my hot summers!

    I love the color contrast of the lip and flower.

    SO many times I've been tempted to buy this one, it's a beauty.

    This is such a nice species, but I have had no luck growing it so far.
