    well done

    very nice, is it fragrant? How about a little cultural info...I picked one up from the Mylasia guy at POE this year, a friend think's it's miss labeled, will see, the alturnitive isn't bad either.:clap:

    Yes, it is "fragrant" but I don't find it pleasant.

    Culture: mostly intermediate temperature but slightly cooler in the winter. Mine is on stick mount and I water it every day in the summer, every other day in the winter. Rh and air movement are good in general. Light level is Cattleya light(2000~2500FC)

    Yep, that is what I have so it should be happy, how would discribe the aroma? something a dung fly would like or perhaps chemical?:eek:

    Some like that fragrance. To me, it smells like cheap perfume with a touch of stinky bug.
