Octopus Orchid Update

Today I noticed that my Octopus Orchid ( Encyclia cochleata ) has another bloom on it. My Octopus Orchid is doing very well mounted to a piece of driftwood. I keep this Orchid in the shade most of the time but it gets a little bit of sun. I water daily to keep the moss damp. If you want to see my other pictures of my Octopus Orchid then click here. Here are the updated pictures.

I hope you enjoyed the pictures!

That is so interesting! I have never seen this orchid before. Does it grow in zone 8? Great pictures :)

It is an unusual but pretty orchid. I guess it must be happy where it is because it has 2 blooms now. :)
