    First bloom. It's got a lovely sweet floral scent. The plant looks scraggly probably because it's a humidity lover and hasn't gotten that under my care until recently.

    Beautiful, Pook. How do you do humidity in Utah? When we lived in Colorado Springs I had trouble keeping hoya alive and I misted them several times a day. Didn't have any orchids then.

    Ann, I got a clear vinyl zippered cover for a 72"H shelving unit and set it up in an east window with fans etc this spring. I refer to this as the Maxillarium©. I've got some of my bigger cool growing plants in it that are too large for the orchidarium. We'll see if it works...
