Encyclia Borincana (Encyclia alata x Encyclia bractecens)

I few years ago I tied this plant to a piece of a teak branch,  I hung it from an ornamental bush in the garden, and that was that.  I had not been fertilized in years, it gets watered infrequently and irregularly, if it doesn't have flowers I don't look at it for months.  And yet it survives very well and blooms better than some plants that I fuzz over and cater to their every wish.  This hybrid is well suited to the hot tropical climate of coastal Puerto Rico.  It can get by entirely with the local rainfall and the dry season doesn't bother it at all.
