In the notes for E michuacana and E . concolor Dressler and Pollard emphasized the size of E. michuacana : " A large to huge plant ... " is used to describe E michuacana . E michuacana is described as having pseudobulbs that can be as large as baseballs." Unless we are witnessing the exception to the rule noted by Dressler, I dont see a huge plant being submitted .
