    Great growing !! Give it a few days to mature and sniff at different times of the day. I have "red" fanatsy and it does have fragrance.

    Dang--that's a big plant! The flowers--for fragrance and shape beneath a magnifying glass--are very well worth the growing. The "Twinkle" is totally appropriate.... Nice job there.

    Well actually they do have a nice fragrance after all.
    Very similar to Oncidium ornitorhynchum but not quite
    so powerful.I noticed it today on the plant i gave my mum
    whilst i was watering it.Checked mine when i got back home
    & that has the same fragrance.It,s like a cross between Wintergreen
    & vanilla.Very pleasant.
