    I would think so but am not sure as of yet. Usually their fragrance is the most intense during the warmest part of the day. I will investigate this week and let you all know.

    WOW wow WOW. It is absolutely beautiful. Thanks for posting the whole plant in full bloom. Very pretty colors. (if the "smiley" was clapping and drooling at the same time that would be even better)

    LOL...that's a good way of putting it!

    So glad you all enjoy that orchid as much as I do. It turned out to really be a great addition to my collection.
