    The flower of this Eria lasted a couple of weeks and had a wonderful lemon fragrance. The individual leaves are about 5-6" long.

    Yes, E pannea is the first Eria I ever got and it is still one of my favorites. I think it need to get a bit dry between waterings. When I have grown it mounted with daily water and start getting moss covering the mount it goes downhill. It has done better potted so it has a longer wet dry cycle.

    Thank you Marni,
    my E. pannea is mounted on cork, I may think to put it into a pot... I can try.

    I know this is bringing back a long forgotten post, but Marni has this species been named yet, or would you by chance have any divisions at this time?

    I still have it but haven't divided it. I still don't have a name though I haven't worked very hard at getting a name.

    Well if you happen to ever divide it, I would love to take it off of your hands. I love the growth habit as well as the flowers on this plant.
