    Smile Sedirea Japonica- 1st Blooming

    Finally, this spike has matured and bloomed. I first found this spike forming on March 13th.

    I don't think this orchid has bloomed before. No nubs to be found.

    Interestingly to me, this one seems to open all the buds, 4 of them this time, simultaneously. It took 4 days to get as open as they are today. But they are all open about the same amount.

    It is quite fragrant. But I have not figured out how to describe it yet. Not unpleasant but not sweet either.

    nice growing, love this little mini, I don't grow many minis because I tend to lose them as an outside grower, thanks to wind and rain, but I love fragrance so I am tempted to try this one
