    oh ya! the smell was POTENT!! it really did smell a lot like my fourth grade teacher's VERY LOUD perfume circa the early mid 80's!!
    one downfall to all of the extremely cheap orchids is they dont often tag them and when i ask for the name, they tell me a pretty sounding chinese name... and when i push for a scientific name more ofthen then not i get a quite out of date orchid book dropped in my hands...im about to go to the market so ill bring a pen and paper, i know theres some still flowering there...ill try to get the name down

    I would like to take care of a baby like yours.
    Please find the name. I like wild things and have to arrange one for me.
