    Default Zygopetalum - some weeks ago

    Hi all,
    As I told before I have been very busy lately. So busy, that I even couldn't post pictures of a Zygopetalum which was flowering a few weeks ago. I will have to look tomorrow on the tag, but I cannot remember it right now. I just wanted to show it to you.

    I love the spotting on the blooms. Is it fragrant?

    Cheers,

    Your first picture is beautiful, you managed to get all the blooms in focus, which I can never do! Very pretty!

    Thanks!
    I always make a lot of pictures and hope that there is one or 2 good ones. so I have been lucky.
    The flowers were indeed fragrant but they had a soft and pleasant smell.

    Hi Senile,
    The plant is potted in a normal bark mix, which we can buy here in garden centers.
    Once the weather gets better here in Belgium i will repot it, because it's necessary. The bark doesn't look so healthy anymore.
