Encyclia granitica “Mendenhall’ x self 


This unusual and hard to find species is native to upper regions of South America and is found growing in granite based or rocky outcroppings. Plants have long slender pseudobulbs when mature with narrow foliage emerging from the top of each growth.  Bloom stems are tall and branched holding dozens of small green and white blooms freckled with olive or tan markings. This is an extremely fragrant summertime showstopper!


 Lithophytes, or 'rock growing' orchids like this must be grown in very well draining media to prevent root rot. We are growing ours in mesh baskets with loose bark for the roots to cling to.  Encyclia granitica is warm to hot growing meaning it is perfect for southern climates and plants will not easily tolerate cooler winter conditions. We water these daily in the spring to late summer and less often during the fall and winter.  Watch foliage for spotting when kept cool or wet under closed conditions.  Extra airflow is very helpful.  Plants should be grown in bright, indirect light. When mature, extremely bright diffused light will promote the best flowerings.


We are offering our first group of plants, a very limited number of blooming size seedlings in 3" mesh baskets.
