Encyclia tampensis- Florida Butterfly Orchid

I don't have a lot of orchids, but this one I've had for about 20 years, give or take. I don't do anything  to it and it flowers every year. It came with me from Illinois (that’s where I'm from originally). It is hanging where it gets sun and rain.

That's a beauty Len. I have a 2 orhids but no flowers yet. I'll have to add this one to my list as I really like how the flower sprays are wide apart...Great look!

You said you had this Orchid for twenty years. Not having any Orchids in my garden YET, i was wondering did you trim or prune the plant. It doesn't seem to be very big for being twenty years old.

I stated with only one small plant (I think) I did remove some plants from it a few years back. I guess it is not as big as it should be for so old but I don't water or do anything for it.
