    Default Brassia caudata alba 'Jem'

    I have had this thing for many years grown from a seedling but it has never flowered. At first I was growing it too dry and the leaves didn't fully expand. It has responded to daily watering through the dry winter for the past few years with its first blooming. It is "fragrant" - like lemon with a slight bit of urine. It is actually pretty pleasant with a sharry baby in full bloom in the same room


    Unfortunately I only had a point and shoot as I need new batteries:
