    Don't put your nose too close to it, Marilyn, or breath stealing might indeed be the word. LOL While not nearly so "fragrant" as many bulbos, medusae tends to have a rather musty/mildewy scent.

    Very nice, Howard! Definitely like this spotty one more than the plain varieties I more commonly see.

    Yeah, I notice the spotted form too, Is there a cross in it or is it a variant?

    This one has a pink color because it is a clonal variation, 'Orchidglade', of the species. 'Orchidglade II' has the small pink dots but is more white. The species has been hybridized, Thai Spider and Lion King.

    You take a cutting of a very superior plant...place in hydroponic stuff in a special set up of water and clay pellets...this is totally basic, but they grow a whole new plant, exactly like the one the cutting came from. It will grow and flower exactly like the "parent" plant. And I only know this from a late night research on something I found on ebay. lol
