    Default Odonticidium?

    I posted the spike from this quite a while back, and Clint suggested it might be O. wildcat based on the foliage. It actually looks pretty close - any one know what it is? Thanks!






    Here is the previous post with the plant and spike forming.

    Thanks for the tips on the ID and the comments.

    I love it but the blooms smell like fiberglass to me.

    Yep..the scented Wildcats are pretty stinky. I'm not sure of the specific cultivar, but it is definitely a Wildcat.

    Thanks Clint, I was hoping you would chime in.

    I'll just put it down as a Wildcat and call it a day unless anyone else can recognize the cultivar.

    Stinky? Mine smells VERY nice. Not overpowering and you have to get close to smell it. Certainly not stinky.

    I would say yes, it is a wildcat, but I don't think you will ever be able to ID it with any certainty.
