    Lovely species, not often seen. It looks like you grow it well. What conditions? Is it true the flowers smell like almond extract?

    PaphMadMan, It grows same condition together with Cymbidium, I feed regularly, tends to like moist media and under high filtered light, withstand single digit C degree temp. at night. Just find out it does not have smell, not sure at night.

    Very pretty. Now this is a very uncommon orchid here - first time seeing this species.
