    Default Trichoglottis geminata

    This was given to me last September by a friend and now it bloomed. Really
    really fragrant orchid.... I think it is one the most fragrant orchid i've ever
    sniffed.

    Sorry about the date on the photo, forgot to change the date on the cam.

    That's really cool! I've been more and more interested in trichoglottis... I don't have the right conditions for mounted plants and the trichos really seem to do better mounted.

    Now that I finally got our trichoglottis to bloom, I am starting to see so many more options from growers here in our community. I need a few more of these.

    Cheers,

    Very nice. I just purchased a Trichoglottis brachiata and I'm looking forward to getting it to bloom. I hope it is as fragrant as yours.

    of course you can.... the mount i have for this is about 1" wide and 1/2" deep.
    and I was able to fit 2 trich. geminata on it.... the mount is about 2 feet high.

    Very nice. I just purchased a Trichoglottis brachiata and I'm looking forward to getting it to bloom. I hope it is as fragrant as yours.
    I had a trich. brachiata before it is fragrant but not as fragrant as geminata
    if i remember correctly.... but im sure you'll love it, i sure did.

    Thanks BD glad you liked it.... i myself is in a mission to collect more trichos.
