    Aerides houlletiana is vandaceous in plant habit , short thick leaves that are 2 inches wide and 6 to 8 inches in length.
    The arching racemes are densely covered in flowers of white, yellow and magenta. The flowers are very fragrant and have a spicy-sweet citrus for me as a lemon grass odor.

    They all look good to me!! Do you know the approximate elevation range where the plant grows? (I use this to see if I might be able to grow it.)

    Beautiful! I can't remember off the top of my head if this Aerides has a fragrance or not.

    Marni, I grew this one for a while outdoors here, so it can definitely grow warm. I just checked IOSPE, and it lists it as from sea level to 700 masl. I believe this one was fragrant.

    Thanks for checking. I suspect that your outdoor temps are warmer than my warmest greenhouse. I can scratch that one from my want list.:(

    yes 700 from sea level, but for a nursery plant that bred and selecte for easy flowered, even somewhere close to sea level those selelected clone have flowered during flowerins season too.
    but for coolness tolerance, no experiance concern.
    somehow may tried and some may adapted and if not freez it may survived.

    Thanks, noioi. If I see one I will probably give it a try. I have been surprised at how many things I have been able to grow when it didn't seem possible. I've also killed a lot, but that is part of growing orchids.
