    Default Stopping to smell the orchids.

    I was wondering if an orchid's second bloom, assuming that the particular orchid in question is supposed to be fragrant, usually has a stronger odor than its first?
    I have noticed that my Haraella odorata didn't smell much at all when it first bloomed. But now that its second flower is about a week old, all I have to do is open the lid to the vivarium where it lives, and I smell it! So does fragrance get stronger with future blooms?
    By the way, the first spike is budding again!!!

    Thanks.

    *sigh*

    I went there and found the vendor I knew had them. That was the one orchid I intended to buy at the NYC show.... the vendor was sold out and I didn't see any others....

    I'm jealous still. Could you MAYBE stop rubbing it in or something?? haha!!

    When I went he was sold out too. I was planning on stocking up and saving on shipping. Oh well.
