    Default Hawaiian Leopard 'Mei-Ling'

    This is the third time I've had flowers from this plant, and this time they have just a very faint scent! Previously, it didn't have one I could detect at all, so that's kind of exciting. I can't help you smell through the internet, but trust me. Here are some pics to look at, at least:

    Great photos of a very pretty orchid. I didn't know it was fragrant. I will have to check mine as I did not notice a fragrance.

    Growling with beauty! I LOVE that!

    The scent is that pink rose/lily fragrance that a lot of orchids have with a clean ozone/laundry tone. It doesn't fill the room by any means but it's definitely there. Thank you all for the compliments!!!
