    Default Dendrobium unicum first flowering

    First time blooming for this Den. Unicum. I read on and off that they are fragrant, but I don't smell anything.

    mine does not seem to have any scent either, and every listing mentions their wonderful scent?? kind of a bummer, i am going to try setting it in brighter light today to see if that does anything? my kingianum needs very bright light to be scented much so i am hoping it will help the unicum. mine only has 3 flowers, the 3rd not open yet, so maybe they all need to be open for scent? fingers crossed... but the color is stunning. i really like the weird lip, reminds me of an arum type plant's flower. mine is pretty small compared to yours, can't wait for next year to see if it does better.

    Let me know if the increased light helps with scent. Mine gets pretty strong light, I was concerned it may be getting too much.

    Mine doesn't seem to have any scent either. Right now it has several well-developed buds but they aren't opening! Very frustrating.
