Encyclia pentotis

ifraser25(z11 Brazil)September 19, 2010

If there were awards for scent - come to think of it, why aren't there? - this would win hands down. Comments range from varying degrees of speechlessness to "Pass the headache pills".IMHO it's one of the most attractive of the Encyclias with with its large back-to-back flowers, but don't keep it in a confined space!
