    Default Trichoglottis geminata

    hi folks,
    this year i got rewarded with my geminatas, over 25 blooms on 2 plants and 20 more buds on others, although hardly any fragrance, maybe too much rain?
    thats how my tricho craze started and i still love em!
    sorry for the bug shot, focus got tired....

    cheers,

    That is a cool bloom and who can complain with that many flowers!! Does the amount of rain/water really alter the fragrance?

    Cheers,

    thanks bruce,
    im not sure what causes the lack of fragrance. last year i had a single bloom and you could smell it from 2 meters away, i just have this theory that maybe the more blooms the lesser fragrance, coz so much energy goes into the blooms???

    cheers to all comments!!!
