    No fragrance detected so far, although I have chronically congested airways....

    Sorry. It sure looks like it would be sweet. A beauty with or without fragrance anyway.

    LOL...looks can be deceiving, Bruce! My Eria bractescens had a fragrance described to me as flamingo poo! I didn't think it was bad, but I didn't think it was good, either. I sniff this guys with guarded reservation.

    Flamingo poo? LOL

    I can see it now...birding by smell field guides? Scratch and sniff? Might be the next craze on the birder scene since birding by ear is pretty common place?

    Sorry, Nelson....off task here.

    You do have some really cool, unique plants! And, I love your photos!
