Catyclia Middleburg 'Maj' x Encyclia bractecens
First bloom for this Encyclia cross in my garden. Do I have to say I am happy? Conditions where I grow this plant are challeging for most orchids as it is a windy place where temperatures can soar into the nineties and humidity can be low. But Encyclia crosses take the wind, the heat and the drought without complaint. I am mighty pleased with the color of the flowers of this first bloom seedling. The Enc. bractecens parent does exceedingly well in my garden, because of this I expect that this plant will thrive in my garden.
