    Yeah, I know the minis are, well...mini, and easier to grow. I really wanted a Chinese species with a cool flower and a killer scent. Hence, tracyanum.

    How bout the Japanese cymbidiums ... not sure if they actually originated from there but ones that come to mind is Cym goeringii, something called "Kanran", Cym lancifolium...

    Also, I have a Cym pumilum var alba which is (fingers crossed) spiking... it is tiny... maybe only 10cms tall!!!

    try those for size restrictions...

    Default Coelogyne ochracea

    The fragrance from this Indian coelogyne species is legendary! In my opinion, it is one of the best fragrances in orchids. Very strong yet utterly pleasant, elegant yet powerful enough to sense it mamy many feet away! A complicated fragrance with notes! I believe one plant of this species won the trophy for best fragrance at the recent New York International Orchid Show a few weeks ago.

    Cheers. Hoa.

    Default Encyclia profusa

    Aptly named! Abundance of lightly fragrant, small lime-green flowers on a single spike! These encylias bloom only when summer is coming!

    Default Encyclia atropurpurea 'Orchis' (Encyclia cordigera?)

    A glorious clone of this wonderful species! Intensely purple/magenta color. I have a few different clones of this species, one with a completely white lip. Easy growing plant as well. It also has a typical encyclia fragrance, kind of spicy.
    Cheers. Hoa.

    Default Epidendrum parkinsonianum

    A striking species from Mexico, it has long pendant fleshy leaves and flowers. The flowers are extremely fragrant at night. Its fragrance is also among the best I have ever sniffed!

    Default Aerides crassifolia

    Lovely and floriferous species from Southeast Asia. Its fragrance is quite unique, kind of like very sweet ripe-banana!

    Nose candy!

    But, it's eye candy as well. Not a bad offering!

    Sir Speedo - we thank you! ...and humble before your olfactory gloriosity!
