This is a cross of Lc Gold Digger x Encyclia rufa. The flowers are small (1 inches) and just cute but outrageously fragrant specially in the morning. The first thing I smell when I go to my living room in the morning is this little thing's perfume. You can smell it at more than 10 ft away!
The perfume comes from the E rufa parent.

Charming! Is it a big plant yet?

If I could take back half of the stupid things that I said, I would have probably said only half as much.

Enc. rufa smells like melons to me. Is it similar to that?

It is a small plant because I had forgotten that I had it and it was stuck among other larger plants on the bench. It is only 4 psbulbs growing around the outside of the clay pot. I got it from RF several years ago.

Yes it smells like Honeydew melon with Jasmine undertones.

Interesting use of rufa. I like!
