    Default Dendrobium amboinensis

    Flowers for half a day only (usually from 4AM to noon), but tends to get quite a few buds over the year. Sometimes up to 4 at once.

    So pretty, Lars. Is this orchid fragrant? With that short of a bloom life, I guess it must be.

    Cheers,

    Lars. Is this orchid fragrant?
    Yes, but it has a slightly unpleasant chemical smell. Reminds me a bit of mothballs
