    Great color on the first one! Do you find that the encyclia cochleata (the second one) smells good?

    They are both wonderful....the bright orange is an eye-catching color I love and the second, the cochleata is a neat little thing.
    Very nice....thank you for sharing!

    Ruxandra both are lovely the cochleata is the national orchid of Belize and they call it simply the "black orchid" so I was very glad to see that Meg was able to identify it for both of us. Thanks for sharing

    Hi,
    This forum is for me a real lesson of universal friendship. I learn every day something new, I glad to see pictures of orchids or nu.Este amazing.
    I'm glad I managed to grow and to have in my-house cochleata -the national orchid of Belize.
    But my "Blake orchid" no smell at all. Why? ( meg 25 say she smell well)
    Soon I will post pictures and that it has flourished a freshman. It is very beautiful.

    Very nice Ruxandra...Sometimes the cochleata needs bright light to give off it's fragrance
