    Default Blc. Volcano Blue '#2'

    Not as blue as I'd hoped for. First blooming of this bag baby from last year. Nice, strong-growing healthy plant. I'm hoping for a better blooming next time around.

    She's beautiful! If she's better next time around I just can't imagine - world class. PS if she's not I'll be glad to host her at my place

    Default Thanks!

    No scent, unfortunately. I think C. bowringiana is the dominant ancestor, hence no fragrance.

    I think it is lovely! Blue orchids are really something! Blue flowers in general interest me. It just seems such an amazing color in an organic thing. I hope it is more 'blue' on the next blooming for you, Clint. If not, no worries - because it is a beauty just as it is!

    Cheers,
    BD
