studio flowers: orchid Encyclia mariae (formerly Euchile mariae)

Orchid Encyclia mariae (formerly Euchile mariae) blooms on a desk in Wraptillion's studio behind a laptop, next to reading glasses and earrings from Wraptillion's Mechanical Garden collection.

Orchid Encyclia mariae (formerly called Euchile mariae) is in bloom again! I brought it into my studio to enjoy, but it’s so distractingly gorgeous I changed my photography plans for the week… Look for new images from my Mechanical Garden collection soon! Shown above: delicate modern dangles (the Short Fuchsia Earrings) and bold modern statement earrings (the Laburnum Earrings). Below: more Mechanical Garden collection earrings.

You’d think I deliberately matched this Ikea cachepot with the green of the orchid flowers, but no — I’d been using them for most of my orchids before I found the Encyclia. (I got mine from Seattle Orchid, and it’s bloomed every year since.)

Orchid care: I grow my Encyclia mariae on my plant shelves in my sunny entryway, with oncidiums like ‘Tsiku Marguerite’ and my tropical Nepenthes pitcher plant vine. (The oncidiums bloom every year too, so I guess I’m doing something right!) See more care info on Seattle Orchid’s page here.

Here’s last year’s flowers — I caught them as one bloom was fading into yellow.
