    Smile doritaenopsis pulcherimma

    In my last collection I had several dtps. One was a medium to dark pink/lav. What I liked about this plant was it had multiple spikes. lovely reddish toned leaves, long lasting in flowering and was also fragrant. Can anyone direct
    me to a vendor who might sell something like this description? It was probably a cross but there are so many and I have memories of this beauty but not sure
    how exactly to replace it with something like it. It was upright and gorgeous.
    Is it pulcherimma that imparts the fragrance to some dtps? Thanks. (Be sure to pm any vendor information as per forum terms. )

    hmm.. not sure pulcherrima is the one that imparts fragrance. Doritis pulcherrima does not have any fragrance as far as I know. Phal bellina, violacea, parishii, etc for sure are fragrant, though.

    I have also not read that pulcherrima is fragrant so it must have been something that
    was in this particular cross: Doritis - Var. Supaporn (Heritage x Chuck Hagan). I believe that was the one that was so nice for scent anyway. It was multi branching, upright,
    fragrant and long lasting in bloom. I wish I could find something again like that one anyway?

    I don't believe Doritis (now Phalaenopsis) pulcherrima is fragrant. It has been used in hybridizing mainly for its tall, upright spikes and many flowers. If the name of the hybrid isn't known, it may be very difficult to find. However, there are many beautiful hybrids out there, many of which are fragrant.
