    Default Sarcochilus falcata

    This is Sarcochilus falcata it is supposed to have a scent of apple blossom but not yet maybe the wrong time of the day. the flowers are about an 1inch accross. The plant is a miniature the slab it is on is 6in x 4in of the cork used for freezer insulation years ago and it seems to like it.

    great flowering Ted... mine is just starting to spike now and can't wait for it to bloom.. i'm trying to remember when the scent is usually strongest... maybe try having a sniff at different times of the day.
