    Pretty blooms. Too bad they are stinky. They look like they would be so pleasant.

    Cheers,

    Pungent or strange-smelling, this is a beauty.

    Hi bruce, sorry I made you misunderstood. More precisely ,it has strange smell,not stinky. This one is from Yunnan. I have another one which is from Hainan , said to be have no fragrance. But it has been fail in blooming for three years though the pseudobulb is much larger than this one.

    Wow..cockroach, eh?? Don't think I could keep that one >.> though i must admit, don't really know what a cockroach smells like, I just squish them as soon as I see one. Can't imagine it would be pleasant though.
