    Default Undecided -- Slc Cosmo Beau

    Bought this orchid not having seen the flower or even a picture of it. The price was good -- $12. This is a 6" pot.



    Size is good -- fits "mini status"

    Flower form is good w/ decent substance. Color-wise though I'm not overly impressed. Was told pink but it's not as bright, pure a pink as I was seeking. [With limited space, yes, I am often quite picky]

    For $12 you can't complain. Any fragrance?

    I think she is very pretty - you can always stuff it in a teddy bear and post it to me over here if you find a better pink!

    That may yet happen.

    Though the color was a bit disappointing, I will have to say this for it -- the flower seems to be holding up quite well. It is still in nice condition and had been in bloom already for 2 or 3 weeks before I got around to posting it.

    Oh and it has a faint fragrance, Di. Nothing spectacular but at least it doesn't stink like Mini Purple.

    It will surely look great when more flower will bloom at once.

    Not bad for a 12 buck...=)

    Default She's pretty!

    Pavel,

    I think she's gorgeous. Really. I'm more picky about how the plant presents itself. This one seems to be a little unruly for my tastes, but there is nothing wrong with the flower!
