    Thanks everyone

    I even caught one of the cats giving it a good long sniff today, it's clearly everyone's favourite.

    Updated photo! The first flower faded but this is what I discovered instead of it yesterday. And there are more buds yet to open. Not bad for a plant with 4 pseudobulbs, I think. Needless to say the scent is fantastic!

    VERY nice, Elena! Is it a big/tall plant?

    Thank, pavel!
    That's the whole plant that you see in the picture so it's not that big. It's in a 3.5 inch pot. The bulbs are just under 2 inches tall, a couple of them have leaves which are about 8 inches long but they arch so are not that tall. The flowers are about 2 x 1.5 inches.
