New orchid – Encyclia

The Pseudo-bulbs are almost more colourful than the flowers! The flowers are sometimes fragrant though, and attractive in their own special way. Definitely like the form of these though and the colour is interesting.

Update – it’s an Enc. cordigera x Epi. floribundum ‘Chief’
