    Default Highly Fragrant Dedrochillum magnum

    Not a plant for someone that doesn't have room. It is 2 feet tall but has long chains of highly fragrant flowers. The flower count per inflorescence is near 80 or so flowers. The spike emerges from new emerging growths.

    not all Dendrochilums get this big. This is the largest species of Dendrochilum that I have in my collection. I have a Dendrochilum that doesn't get taller than 3"

    Lol.. Thanks for sharing this additional info. I'll think of the 'spicy yet sweet' perfume when looking at your orchid, but try ignoring the 'cat urine' if I can...could be a delicate task though, cause it can be quite overpowering...
