    Thumbs up Dendrobium unicum!

    Okay, it finally opened up last night. When I took the pictures I gave the flower a little sniff and there was a very faint 'Crayola Crayon' smell that I hope becomes more potent as the bloom ages!

    Gorgeous flower! And still quite some buds to open.
    I am curious to see them all together...
    Well done!

    Very nice Shann...Are you able to describe the fragrance of your? I will let you know what I think it smells like after you decide.

    Mine bloomed in late March or early April but I see one more bud on mine.

    It is very faint...I hope it will become more prominent as it ages. I would say it’s almost like a tangy or spicy crayon/wax smell.

    I will!

    okay...it was not just me then...I too thought it smelled like a sharpened crayon and I thought there was a sweet citrus undertone.
