It is a naturally occurring hybrid orchid. The "4N" in its name signifies that it has a tetraploid chromosome count, which can affect its growth and characteristics. This hybrid is a cross between two different species or varieties within the Encyclia genus. While specific traits can vary depending on the parentage, Encyclia orchids are known for their showy and often fragrant flowers. Proper care includes providing bright but indirect light, maintaining consistent humidity, and allowing the roots to dry out slightly between waterings.
