    Any scent? I had one similar to the first photo and it had a faint sweet floral smell to it.

    Always love these. You know why they are called spider orchids? Because when the blooms dry up and fall on the floor and you walk into the room or greenhouse and see them, you think they are spiders. hahaha...

    Beautiful orchids, Noi!

    Cheers,

    I love the spider orchids. Their flowers are conversation starters for certain. And so far I haven't jumped back at any of the dried flowers...although I can see why one would.

    I have a couple 'Spider' orchids, but nothing as pretty as your first photo. I like that very much. AL
