    A tall spiked Encyclia with smallish flowers (about 3/4-1" tall).

    I had one of these years ago that I got from George Norris. Flower was small and similar, but the spike was short...in proportion to the size of the flowers.

    Yes, flowers are small, but my spike is about 30 inches tall on a first bloom seedling

    Great yellow colouring! Nice. I may need one of those to add to my encyclia collection!
