    Quite some years ago, I was given a packet of seed labeled Encyclia mooreana. I finally flowered one of the seedlings a few months ago and a friend gave me the correct ID. It has a wonderful fragrance and long lasting flowers. I grow it in a warm greenhouse. Encyclia.91157-0004.flwr.jpg

    The shape of the pseudobulbs is intriguing.

    Is that the new name for Prosthecea?

    Marni, how are you growing it? I'm expecting a plant this month with a recent import form Brazil.

    It is for this species since 2004, but I don't think Prosthechea has gone away.

    I've been growing it warm, but I was recently told that it was cold tolerant. When I checked ISOPE it gives this information:
    Found in Costa Rica, Panama and Colombia at elevations of 900 to 1600 meters as a medium sized, warm to cool growing epiphyte with a short broad pseudobulb that blooms in the spring on a terminal, racemose inflorescence carrying 20 to 24 flowers.

    Give ample sun, spring and summer waterings and then less in the fall and winter.
