    Cool Rhynchocentrum 'Ladda Gold'

    Now this little plant is one very good bloomer. Also; when I walk past it the scent is simple wonderful! Even on the back porch it can make a good size area fragrant. I left the tag in to show the size of the plant...and yes this is a standard size thick plastic orchid tag.

    Love it, Connie - the color, size, growth habit, everything! Wish I could smell it! Something about it reminds me remotely of a clivia.

    When I first smell the flowers again I always think a man is on my back porch wearing very nice cologne. lol I alway laugh at myself, but it smells like a very sexy expensive man's cologne. It's yummy...

    Awesome colors on this one !! I must surely be on a lookout for one. Is it a frequent bloomer?

    This one blooms roughly every 3 months. I need to get it out of the little pot some day....every time I think to repot it, there is another spike.

    Very nice! I love it and I am jealous. I have two plants, both quite a bit larger than yours. One flowered two years ago with three spikes but nothing since. The 2nd one just sits there and gobbles up fertilizer and grows and refuses to flower.
    Maybe I should put on a stern expression and keep saying, "Compost heap".
