Another Flower Photo by Rick Cirono.


Common Name Andrich's Encyclia [Brazilian original collector of Species current]

Flower Size 1.2" [3 cm]

Found in Espirito Santo state of Brazil at elevations around 200 meters as a small sized, hot growing epiphyte with 2 to 3, erect, linear, acute leaves that blooms in the spring on an erect, 24 to 40" [60 to 100 cm] long, paniculate, 15 to 20 flowered inflorescence carrying slightly fragrant flowers

Similar to Encyclia seidelii but E andrichii differs in it's epiphytic habit and in it's paniculate inflorescence and smaller flowers with larger lateral lobes. Also similar to E kundergraberi but you can see the differences in the photo above.
