    Thanks Jordan. Probably because you grow them outside. You have to get your nose really close to smell the fragrance.

    Yes Jordan, I have a couple of phals in bloom right now (I think you saw them, I posted the pics in another thread). I also have two phals which have started to spike last week (the spikes are half an inch long).
    P.S. you can call me Gaby

    That's cool Jordan. I can't find Masdies or Stenoglottis here in Romania ... I forgot to mention, I also have a Pleione formosana in spike right now, but it will still be a couple of weeks before the flower opens.

    Thanks for your reply Bruce!
    I'm not familiar with Pleiones Jordan (just got them a couple of weeks ago), but I know they like shallow pots, so I think 2 inches is fine.
