    Default Phal. venosa

    My Phal venosa just opened her first flower.



    Many people are not as fond of this species because it is not brightly colored, but I think she is lovely .

    Wow, it looks like a tiny bloom. How large is it? Is it fragrant as well?

    Cheers,

    I have long been wanting to have a venosa of my own for my collection (including zebrina, cochlearis, corningiana, inscriptiosinensis, speciosa, sumatrana, etc. among others).

    No, not particularly tiny. Natural spread is about 1.5 inches. Fragrant, ...well...yes. It has kind of an odd smokey fragrance. Some describe it as "bacon-like" or like charcoal briquets. Well , when I first took a whiff it smelled kind of like stale cigarettes . After sniffing some more, I would agree with the briquet smell over the bacon smell. After all, wouldn't want to be tempted to put it in a pan and fry it up .
