    I went to myakka to get this one but decided at the last minute on Blc Hawiian Lightning 'Fiesta'. Considering the storm that crashed our orchid buying, Lightning was appropriate!
    What is the fragrance like?

    Great shot! Nice plant, I have one that has been sulking awhile. Maybe I should threaten it with the compost bag.

    If mine gets too warm, it seems to sulk too. This one is really fond of intermediate temps, it seems. The plant is only 10" tall and the blooms are about 3" across. Fragrance is sweet--almost like C. walkeriana.
