Thanks everybody for the feedback. I guess I'll just wait and see if if anything germinates that looks like it could be a result of that cross, which sadly will take about 1-2 years as the Encyclia...

Is anyone aware of successfull hybridization of Gongora with Encyclias?

Last year I pollinated an Encyclia flower with Gongora pollen on a whim. The resulting seed pod has developed pretty much the same as the naturally pollinated ones on the same plant, normally a sign...

Has that worked for you? I find that a lot of the pollen that I try to store for any extended length of time rarely produces a successful pollination. A few days, even a couple weeks sometimes, seems...

Surprise flowers late in the year.

Update: The first pollinations didn't take. But the ones on the second flower shoot did with one cross and one self. The seed pods are developing nicely.
A couple weeks ago I noticed a new flower...

I'm kind of in between the hard core dry seasons of Guanacaste and the much milder dry seasons of the Caribbean coast. Typical would be between 12-8 weeks with no rain. Though it's humid enough for...

In my experience with Sobralias, the roots and center knot of growth are more important than the twigs. I've saved a few that had been pretty badly damaged. If the roots were mostly OK they recovered...

Sobralia cf. warscewiczii

Here's a nice photo I got off of a Sobralia that I've had for nearly 10 years and only started blooming a few years ago. I hadn't been able to ID it for the longest time. But I think I may have found...
