    Default Rhyncholaelia Aristocrat

    Purchased this as a large previously bloomed plant. The scent is really nice however I wish it had better shape or was more floriferous. What do you think?

    For a white bloom, it is very pretty! Size, in this case, makes up for quantity, IMO.

    A single flower per growth is all that can be expected for this cross, very typical for both species of Rhyncholaelia that contribute to the hybrid. It looks like the flower has good size and excellent symmetry, and the form is better than average for the cross. I love this hybrid, but you can't expect it have full round form.

    Is the flower larger than a regular digbyana? I've seen an Aristocrat with several flowers but it was a large plant with many pseudobulbs. Just keep it growing.
