Part sun Hot Warm to LATE Winter Spring
Common Name The Yellow Encyclia
Flower Size 1 1/4" [3 cm]
Found in Venezuela and Para' and Matto Grosso states of Brazil in
subtropical forests as a small sized, hot to warm growing epiphyte
and occasional lithophyte that blooms in the winter and spring .
Said to be a synonomous with Encyclia amicta (L. Linden & Rchb.
f.) Schltr. 1919 and E linearifoliodes but I will leave it separate
at this time. I have also left E conchaelabia separate as well that
is often cited as a synonym of E flava.
Synonyms Encyclia bicornuta Brade 1943; Encyclia microxanthina
Fowlie 1991; *Epidendrum flavum Lindl. 1841
