    Intermediate grower. Plant looks like a vanda.

    Is this a bigger plant than pusilla?

    "Is this a bigger plant than pusilla?"

    Yes. It's difficult to quantify, but I'd say it's about 3 times the size of pusilla.

    Tom, I've never noticed a scent from the flowers of this plant.

    Thank you. Too bad the flowers aren't also 3x bigger.

    Dale, the flowers of this species should be fragrant. I don't know if the sun light has anything to do with it...
