    Looks like you grow these well they look fantastic. Do they all have a fragrance or only the white one?
    I have just bought 2 of these, one is the spotted one, the other is a solid red. I haven't grown these before and would appreciate any advice you can give. thanx

    All of them are very fragrant.A few notes that I have about this beauty.
    1) Resents repotting so careful when you have to repot.
    2) Grow them in bright indirect light. They don't quite like direct light. I grow them in a shade house of 50%.
    3) fertilize regularly in seaweed extract and regular 19 all, all around the year
    4) Quite a slow grower and requires a drop in temperature to initiate blooms.
    5) Pure Red ones are quite finicky about any temperature difference after initiation of spike and would abort.

    I've read the whole genus has the same fragrance.
    Thanks for sharing your blooming secrets ksriramkumar.

    Looks healthy. In my opinion, looks like it requires 2-3 years to bloom. There are small variations in the spot and yes could be similar to one I shared
