    The correct genus is Rhyncholaelia, Nora. And again, congratulations for this blooming.

    I have one I have had for several years and it finally bloomed ( its over now though) wish I had known that it might be fragrant, I'll have to check some evening next time it blooms!

    No, not really. I grow it at the south window. Heard from my orchid buddy that you have to ensure you transplant them at the right time, otherwise, they will die. I believe you have to make sure there are new roots before you transplant. They don't like to transplant too often either. It is currently in moss and I am planning to move it to barks next spring.

    Thank you for the reply. I bought the Jemminey Cricket along with a Rhyncholaelia digbyana frilly lip plant.

    When I started out, I repotted 2 different Catt type orchids at the wrong time, i.e. like Nora said, no new root growth in progress at the repot time. And lost both of them.
