    This orchid is quite unusual. I agree with all comments previously posted and will add that I like the fact that these have a sweet scent and they are certainly good size flowers. AL

    This ida-the orchid of the is moderate-cold . I have planted her in greenmix (the inorganic substratum consisting of mineral cotton wool and a perlite, I have bought it in Denmark).The substrat there should be wet all time, and he well cools roots . The plant very compact - bulbs only 7 sm, leaves - about 40 sm, a flower - 20 sm.
