    Lightbulb Bllra. Peggy Ruth Carpenter 'Morning Joy' blooming

    Picked this orchid up last night at the grocery store for $13! Multiple spikes on several new growths, and it is exploding out of it's pot. I really like the shape of the flowers, that they are a little thinner and more pointed then the Bllra. Peggy Ruth Carpenter (not 'Morning Joy') which is the pic in my avatar.

    From what I could find online it is a cross of the hybrids:
    Bellara Tahoma Glacier x Milt Purple Queen.

    It might have a faint scent, hard to tell untill it is a bit warmer. I also wonder if the flowers will stay light colored or turn a bit more purple as they age, the way my regular Peggy Ruth Carpenter does.
    Thanks for looking

    Do the flowers give off a nice fragrance? I have a Mtssa. Shelob 'Webmaster' or Miltassia C.M. Fitch "Izumi" ..I cant really determine what it is but I can remember when it was in bloom the whole room would smell so sweet and exotic.

    There is a very slight fragrance, and it is nice, but not at all strong.
