    Aren't they just about the best? That smell is so clean and just arresting. Mine is in spike right now but no buds fattening up yet. I only have one, I think I need more to spread around that smell.............lets see, a white one, a blue one, how many can I come up with?

    Love these! I have a very small plant that has a long way to go till it gets to blooming size. May have to get it a big brother/sister--maybe both so i can enjoy these blooms sooner. Gosh i hate waiting for orchids to grow and bloom!

    Hi Don, they do smell wonderful! I hope you'll post pictures when your spike grows out buds and flowers. Yeah, and definitely get a white and a blue. They are all gorgeous.

    Bill, I believe you should get a big brother or sister for your little bellina. It will shorten the wait and inspire the little 'un!

    Gita, Nice ! I like the way the petals of the bloom look like they were air brushed with purple. Having a fragrants is a great bonus. Have Fun,Rich
