    How long does its flower last? Several hours? I guess it has delightful fragrance.

    Mietek, my plant's flowers last from a day to a day and a half, with this curious scent I can't quite put my fingers on. I mean, I can't tell if it's fragrant or bordering on being offensive.

    A pretty orchid regardless of its fragrance. I love how Wally put it "....I mean, I can't tell if it's fragrant or bordering on being offensive."

    cheers,

    Cute little thing, Mietek. Too bad the flowers are so short-lived.

    Wally, enjoy your flowers and don't think to much about their scent.
