    Smile Wilsonara Finial Fire 'Clown' In Bloom

    One spike of very fragrant, smells like the Sharry Baby, with the blooms at the end of the spike. It. like Sharry Baby, are most fragrant in the early part of the day. With the 2 of them in bloom together, my house smells nice. The base end of the spike will bloom on it own later. Those branches and buds are only just forming now.

    Nice shots, Harvey. Beautiful blooms and that Sharry Baby fragrance is a great bonus - I just love that chocolate smell.

    Lovely! Don't forget to take some of the whole plant too, I'm always interested in what the whole thing looks like. Your macro shots are cool though! I don't have a macro lens for my new camera, but am waiting for the many Phals I have in spike and the two Paphs too!

    Here's a shot of the whole plant. Notice the ugliness on the old, pb's (on the right) that was there when the orchid was delivered. The 2 new pb's I've grown are clean.
