    Thez what plant you referring to? Most problems related to not blooming is light if the plant is growing fine. Orchids will grow fine without enough light but won't bloom. Cattleya alliance is pretty high light. Not full sun like a vanda but strong light. Full blast morning or evening. Shaded noon time. Toughly speaking.

    Thanks for the kind words!

    Though i'm not completely certain of the parentage of this plant, i have just been informed on another forum that this plant may indeed be Lc. Loog Tune 'Golden Apple' and that if it is, that plant has won an AM/OSROC.

    He explained what all of that 'Code' meant, and i was frankly quite surprised with it all, as i haven't really delved all that deeply into the mysterious world of orchids before.

Never stick your nose to smell a bulbo echinolabium or a bulbo phal. Wow putrid. I still love the oddities though.

    Thank goodness the pretty ones that are not odd do smell pleasant. And just because it is a big flower doesn't mean it will have big fragrance. My two best smelling flowers are in the small side. Den kingianum and den rigidum. Rigidum has been changed to something else but you can easily find the cross reference.
    That's not what I meant, I was merely referring to their appearance, not the the scent. I have three orchids, none are scented really . . . Well my yellow phal does have detectable scents when the sun hits it .

    I'm sure a lot of orchids would do well for you with your window exposure there Daniel.

    It's frosty outside here, but with the sun shining, it's bright and warm inside and the sun's heat is making these flowers smell ever so lovely today...

    ...so i couldn't resist taking and posting at least one more indoor shot...

    That's a really nice one! I'd love to get more Cattleyas and Paphs.
