    That is a very cool-looking orchid - it has a fragrance, doesn't it? My husband, Phillip, just acquired a really young one and is a little daunted by the size of yours - I'm working on getting him to keep it!

    Faint scent of honey, mainly at night

    Make sure he keeps it: it may take a few years until it flowers though. It is well worth it, despite its size.
