    Thanks...this one is an oldie but a goodie. And yes, it would be amazing if it smelled like peppermint too. They had a whole table of dens with 2-3 spikes. I had a tough time leaving with the few plants I did. My girlfriend is in town and she is the one I get plant crazy with. lol It's fun shopping with someone as orchid nutty as me once in awhile.

    Well, I have to admit, I usually do not purchase orchids that don't smell good. However, those two dendrobiums are very pretty, Connie! Betty...:-)

    I find it very dangerous to go plant shopping with someone who is like minded. There is NO control valve at that point. It is very fun though.

    Funny...the only time i've ever used the word "danger" and "shopping" together is when i'm worried about being mugged! lol The only danger would be the credit card people would cut me off!
