    Default Cochleanthes lobata

    I'm a Cochleanthes fan though difficult to get but if I have the chance I will buy it. This species native to South America emitted such a nice fragrant especially in the morning.

    Interesting flower, Zain. I've never seen this particular species before. For that matter, I rarely see Cochleanthes at all whether at shows or offered for sale.

    Ya I agree with you, initially I'm not interested with this species after friend of mine introduced to me Cochleanthes Amazing then I fell in love, I always ask my friend when they go for the international orchid show, try to find for me especially this species. Usually you can get it from South America vendors.Thanks Paul.

    Pretty and very rare in Malaysian collections. I recently got an Acacallis cyanea, another of those hard-to-come-by South American species. This has light blue flowers (I have this weakness for 'blue' orchids). Will post when it blooms.

    Congrats Yew looking forward your post later, this is one of the most easiest species to bloom in our local temperature, need more light to induce flowering.

    What a charming orchid - and beautifully photographed. I have never seen one either, and will now search it out. I have a weakness for fragrant orchids and find that they aren't so easy to come by - that is, if you're not a big catt grower. Congrats with this and good luck!
