    Very nice - that's one of the best species. It and other Encyclias can be pretty fragrant, but it varies greatly from plant to plant and also based on growing conditions. People tend to be divided about whether they smell good or not. I like them, but sometimes they get overpowering when close. Up close, the big Enc. radiata I used to have could knock someone over with its licorice fragrance. But it smelled great from a few feet away. By the way, they aren't Enc. cochleata anymore; they've reverted to Anacheilium cochleatum: http://www.orchidspecies.com/anacochleata.htm

    Whoa that thing looks sweet! It's like an octopus or something. Kinda like a jack-in-the-pulpit, too. Nice job!

    not sure exactly. its usually 60* night with 75-80* day. ~70% humidity and 2 26 watt CFL's (200 watt output combined). its growing fine and in the same terrarium with the 2 helis you sent me, H. minor x heterodoxa and heterodoxa x ionasii. they both are growing great BTW
