    Thats a sweet plant! I must buy one... immediately!!!

    Do you ever wonder what would happen to us orchid addicts if this all became illegal? How much would you pay for an orchid on the underground market??? It would be worse than drugs!

    To me, most of them smell like fresh bake sweet bread or dessert. Like cinnamon roll without cinnamon! And you can smell this about 15 feet away! Super super strong scent. One drawback of Stanhopea is that a flower last at most 3 days. You have to grow them real big so they have tons of flowers, then you can have blooms for about two weeks.
