    Default Chysis Aurea

    I visited an orchid nursery some days ago and I saw this one. I have never seen one before nor even encountered it in the limited orchid books that I have. It just caught my attention and knew right then that it is coming home with me. Some advise for caring for it would be greatly appreciated ....thanks in advance....carl

    Carl, your aurea is very pretty, I had this species, my plants very healthy but refused to bloom maybe high temperature.

    Thanks guys and the info is very helpful Randy, thank you. Zainal, I viewed the pictures of your chysis that you posted here and some infos about them, and you mentioned that they smell like jackfruits, love that! Unfortunately, this one that I have is devoid of any fragrance.
