    I love some of the smaller fragrant orchid blooms on my three Neosylis Lou Sneary orchids. My favorite is 'Blue', but "Blue Bird' and 'Pink' are also lovely and all are fragrant. Also, a phal borneo - love the fragrance on that orchid!

    Cheers,
    BD

    Now you've gone and done it! I've been in Portland, ME for the last few days taking care of a friend with Alzheimers while her caregiver takes a vacation and now you've given me a wonderful place to take her on an outing this rainy day. And it's going to cost me money, I can tell already. It will definitely be your fault if I spend too much money.

    My favorite fragrant catt is Blc. Mem. Anna Balmores 'Convex'. It's a compact semi-alba with a beautiful fragrance and a reliable bloomer. A few more with excellent fragrance are Lc. Angel Love 'Pinky', Blc. Fritz Nickolaus 'Spring Dance'. For species with fragrance I like C. Jenmanii and C. walkeriana.

    Do you know the nursery? If not, PM me and I'll give you details. Warning: the proprietor is charming and you WILL spend too much money - but don't we always?
