    I have never had a cym that was fragrant. I did not know any were.

    I have heard that not all Sharry Baby's were fragrant either. The spike I had last year was scentless, but a cross I have that includes SB was wonderfully fragrant.

    There are at least 3 paphs that are fragrant. Malipoense (sp?) and delanatii are two of them.

    My Cym. Maureen Carter ‘Dafon’(大凤) and Onc Sharry Baby were both fragrant. I think my Sharry Baby is quite overwhelming though.
    Choose the chinese cymbidiums (like ensifolium, kanran, georengii, sinense) if you want fragrance, rather than the standard sized crosses.

    Paph malipoense and delenatii are supposed to be fragrant. Paph emersonii and hangianums, and kolopakingii have also been noted as fragrant.

    ...the fruit flies keep flying into my paph pouches, and they are fragrant if you rub some oil off with a swab and take a sniff. My maudiae type had a fruity scented oil, but very subtle

    Many cymbidium species are fragrant like Cym. sinense and related species. Their fragrances are quite unique. Australian cymbidium species like canaliculatum and its hybrids are also noted for their expceptional fragrances as well.
    Cheers. Hoa.

    Excellent, thank you everyone!

    That's interesting about Sharry Baby, I suppose the only way to be sure would be to buy one in bloom.

    My Paph Miller's Sunset had a very very faint fragrance, I didn't look into its parentage properly but I might now, I'm intrigued to find out where it might have got it from.

    I'm also going to go and research some of those Cyms. My wish list for Peterborough show in June is going to be huge

    I found a nursery that sells a few of those Cymbidiums. I've read that sinense and ensifolium are easier to grow that kanran so I'm tempted especially since at 15 euro for a flowering size plant they seem to be very reasonably priced. I also like the look of Cym dayanum.

    That is a great price! Are you getting all three?

    The space is somewhat limited so I'll have to try and narrow it down to two!

    Here is some math for you. If you have 10 four inch pots and there is a certain distance between each, say two inches. Now, if you move each pot one inch closer to each other you get a net gain of NINE inches. That is enough room for TWO more four inch pots!

    Aren't you forgetting one little thing? The way the plants stick out over the side of the pot? Those pesky leaves just get in the way of more pots! I obviously need to get plants with thinner strap like leaves that grow upwards.
