    Default Epidendrum nocturnum (xself)

    this is my second young epi nocturnum. the first one flowers, but i have not yet noticed any scent, so i got another. the scent is not really strong, and did not show up until very late last night/early this morning. sweet scented though. i will eventually put it into a small wood basket.

    hey coincidentally i have one in bloom too..they are found commonly here and are autogamous or sometimes cleistogamous as most of our common orchids are e.g.Dimerandra stenopetala.....my flower looks a little different to yours as there are probably 4-6 different populations found here...plant habit,flower shape are the usual differences..species show a lot of variation within the NOCTURNUM group..

    so what do you think of the scent? not a showy plant or flower at all, only draw being the night scent... i only have one flower open, so the scent is very light and it was barely detectable very late at night (like 3am). the first plant i have not ever noticed a scent at all, it only has one flower at a time usually, but now has 2 stems budding. i was hoping for stronger scent, and am wondering if there are any conditions to be met to make it produce a stronger scent... warmer nights, more light, more water? threaten to toss it out? i made sure to fawn over my b. nodosa in front of it... hoping that would help. i can't have gotten 2 unscented duds????????

    scent seems to vary too with individual populations of nocturnum (like caularthron) plant may be young and as it matures you may be more pleased??? a host of reasons...nocturnum is found in low light sometimes very low so i dont think thats a factor..one day ill get some in situ shots for u
