    I like the smell! My last one that croaked did not have a fragrance (even before it croaked). I love this clamshell orchid.

    I love these flowers. I'm glad this one seems to be happier than the first one was.

It is so lovely to be able to see what they might look like one day. thanks for the photos and the info that its scented. Just wish I could smell them also LOL

    It is Encyclia 'Green Hornet'. I think cochleada is in the name also, or maybe that's what it used to be called. Not sure. Help, anyone?

    I am not sure if I am right, but I read that cochleada is the parent of 'Green Hornet' and is not fragrant?!

    Tami
    Enc Green Hornet is a primary hybrid of Enc cochleatum X lancifolium
    But with the name changes, It is now Prosthechea Green Hornet and lancifolium is now Prosthechea cochleata var. cochleata and Enc choleatum is Prosthechea cochleata

    My chocleata is very fragrant. I ended up trading off my Green Hornet because it looked too much like my cochleata
