    Encyclia Orchid Jungle

    Encyclia Orchid Jungle. My plant produces four feet long inflorescences that have to be staked and secured so that when its windy they don't tip the pot in its side. The inflorescence has forty flowers. Fragrant

    Repotting every year?

    I have wondered about this too. When I repot my plants most of the roots are in a solid mass hugging closely the inner wall of the pot. Changing the media doesn't disturb them much.

    Round fungus spots attacking my Paphs. If some of you have insights on a durable solution.

    I have this exact same problem even thought my Paphs are in an exceedingly well ventilated area. It seems to strike at random, most of my plants aren't affected.

    Guarianthe skinneri forma oculata

    I would not use the word rare, probably its much less popular than the typically colored ones. Also its an albescens form, hobbyists tend to prefer albas.
