    Yours has a fragrance? Mine had virtually no scent at all.

    Cool flower!

    mine has what I would call a honey suckle type scent, but not as sweet, it is a fragrant flower but it's the type that requires sniffing around the blooms, not the type to fill the air with a heavy aroma. beautiful blooms

    This is one of my favorite orchids. I have never seen a Spectabile this young bloom. Good growing!!!
    I saw my first Spectabile at an orchid show. The plant was very impressive and covered with blooms. The grower told me that for these plants to do well they must be abused. I have often wondered if I am abusing my plant enough and if I am providing the correct abuse! My plant has a honey like scent.

    Always a strange and fun orchid bloom. I like this dendrobium and your photos. Good job!
