    Get a C. lueddemanniana - they are not too problematic to grow - I'm told the darker ones tend to have stronger scent. If you are able to grow C. aurea, they are sooooo aromatic that I can detect the scent before they even finish opening up. Unfortunately they don't last more than 10-14 days, but they are stunning when in bloom.


    BTW: I believe your orchid is a Coilostylis ciliaris (formerly Epidendrum ciliare). They do look like skinny cattleyas when growing Epidendrum ciliare. Some have more 'hairs' on the lip, others don't .
