Encyclia cordigera [HBK] Dressler 1964, a particularly fine flower
The flower of this plant is among the largest I have seen in a cordigera orchid. The pseudobulbs are large and husky. The plant is the property of a friend, he has cultivated it to perfection. The plant was brought on a local vendor, but appears to be the product of a cross of superior plants.
