    Default Cycnoches Jumbo Puff 'Taiwan Gold'

    Thanks to Cin and Mr. Hicks for introducing us to this beauty. I love the yellow/green flavor. We got her in bud in November. Just had to share her beautiful blooms. Surprisingly, the fragrance is strange; like plastic in the hot sun.

    Great description of the fragrance, but the flowers are wonderful.

    Smartie, this plant is only about eight inches tall right now. Cin suggested that they may have removed the leaves for shipping, and that they normally lose their leaves after blooming. (Cin, please correct me if I said this wrong). The plants normally have long vertically pleated leaves. Cin's Wine Delight (if I rememeber correctly) is a lovely plant, even without blooms. I can't remember how long the leaves get, but they remind me of lily leaves. I like the swans description - my husband saw streetlights on the plaza LOL!

    BD, I thought it was unusual too, but I know so few orchids anyway.

    Thanks for looking,
    Tami

    Smartie, this one smells like melting plastic. Not horrible, just a very odd fragrance.
