Nice colour combo Bill!
Very well grown.
Very pretty. The color combination is stunning. Good growing. Thank you for sharing.
Congratulations on the beautiful plant, and on your close-up photography. I just learned that my Canon Powershot A590 has a built-in close-up lens. It's not as good as a separate lens, and I tried to get one when my Potinara Burana Beauty bloomed this week. But no one has the lenses in town.
So here's the best I could do. Got this plant last week from a grower. It came with 6 buds, and all 6 buds bloomed this week. I can take no credit for any of it.
There was another specimen at the grower's which had a delicate rose fragrance. Maybe my plant got tired and just couldn't muster the rose smell.
Have any of you caught a whiff of the fragrance?
Hi, Romulus. Love your bloom pic. I really love this catt and yes mine had a nice almost lite rose fragrance. It did loose it towards the end and seemed to have it only during the day. I can take credit for those particular pics. My partner took those. He is into photography almost as much as I am into orchids. Have know idea what type of lenses he used. He has all types and sizes. I just use a little digital camera that has no bells or whistles. Those big lenses scare me! LOL Bill
Beautiful blooms and very well-grown.
Thank you Bill & Yew,
Below is another photo of the Pot. Burana Beauty I bought last week. I have now detected the ROSE fragrance in its 5 blossoms. The scent is present only by day.
Yesterday I got my copy of Steven A. Frowine's "Fragrant Orchids." Frowine claims Burana Beauty has a CITRUS fragrance. My Beauty is "rose." Either scent would be ok with me.
I recommend this book as a valuable resource.
Romulus, scent is so subjective and our description of scent depends so much upon our 'experience referral' but I also think there's a hint of rose in Burana Beauty.[ But who am to say this? I'm no 'scentist' . hahaha]
Pictures like these show why the catt is called "The Queen of Orchids." This plant is just stunning!
Bill, you have a really beautiful plant here! Congrats on the gorgeous blooms! How old is your plant? What caught my eye were the leafless p.bulbs. I also have a burana beauty - an older bushy plant I bought some 5 or 6 years ago and it doesn't have a single leafless p.bulb yet... I wonder what would be more typical of this plant - for the p.bulbs to keep the leaves or to go leafless? Maybe fellow burana growers will also chime in with their observations?
Here's my plant:
