i've noticed some oncidiums are fragrant when in direct sun, and not at all when shaded. but eventually the sun will burn them, so what do you do? my sharry baby and a few others are highly scented in the sun, and barely scented otherwise. bright light gets me slight frangrance... also watering has an effect. with some sun and recent watering, my sharry baby can perfume the whole apartment.
i've never seen a 10" vanda? 5 to 6" maybe... but 10"? which ones?
Very interesting thread. The biggest 'dinner plate' vanda I've seen were about 5 inch 'saucers' (and I've seen a fair number of vandas in my time). I have a 7inch Blc King of Taiwan but was told that they reach 9 inches in Taiwan, My Blc Haadyai Delight varies between 3 1/2 - 6 inches. I've seen a Rossoglossum grande hybrid that was almost 5 inches and a Vuyl Cambria Plush that was 4 inches. Cultural conditions, the number of flowers, the age of a plant play a significant part in determining the size of the blooms. Yes i measured the aforementioned orchids.( I carry a small measuring tape which serves as key holder for my motorcycle keys).
The biggest dendrobium I have is Den King Dragon cross which is 3 1/2 inches and looks like a small/medium size cattelya.
