    Nice Tom. I killed one of these years ago and don't know why I haven't tried it again.

    Nice Tom! I LOVE this Encyclia and have killed at least two of them myself. What kind of temps do you give it, Tom?

    Thanks!
    Jon, the temperature range is 55-73F(winter 55-63/65F and summer 67-73/75). It has been nice to me since 2004/2005. My plant is on stick mount and it gets daily watering year round, bright light, good rh and air movement.

    Thanks for the info, Tom.
    Yeah, I thought it got too warm outside in the summer.
    Where are you growing yours Forrest?
