    Default Fdk. After Dark 'Black Pearl'

    Enjoy growing cycnoches and cycnodes so thought this would be a good fit for my collection. The blooms are fragrant which is always an added bonus. Name:  Fdk After Dark 2-11-2014a.jpg

    Congratulations on your blooms ! This hybrid doesn't stop to amaze me even after I have rebloomed it thrice now.
