    ...well, you really have to get up close and personal in order to smell the "fragrance"...

    Bet the cats will love it

    I like kolos, shame about the size and, evidently, the smell.

    ...just got Louis to go and smell the Paph. kolopakingii... he did that "mean face" they do when they smell another animal.

    Note: NOT CAT FRIENDLY!

    Here's Louis again

    The size is a big factor... they have huge leaves and take up quite a bit of space. A worse species would be Paph. gigantifolium...

    ...I am pretty sure Louis is afraid of the kolos... I got about 10 feet from the kolos before he started fighting to get away...
