    Thanks, LIJane! My Brassia gireoudiana smells very sweet and fruity. What does your verucosa smell like?

    Oh--I just knew you were going to ask that Uhhhhhhhhh-- I think it's rather heavy & spicy but then I'm not good at describing scents.

    I know what you mean. I had a Brassia Rex which is gireoudiana x verucosa and the blooms had a spicy cinnamon scent, so I guess it must be from the verucosa parent.

    Now, if you grow in a greenhouse, how do you enjoy them when you aren't in the greenhouse? Do you move them to the house when they bloom? I like to see mine when I go to look out my window, so I was wondering how you get the enjoyment of flowering a plant when it's all the way outside. I live in the south, so from the end of june to the middle of august, it is so hot and humid out that most of the locals hide out in the air conditioning. The heat index was 110 today, obviously not the type of weather to hang out outside in a greenhouse.

    Jennifer-I enjoy them in the greenhouse in the winter & sometimes I will bring them into the house.but not for any length of time as I want the flowers to last longer.I do spend time in the backyard in the summer checking out the blooms & watering.Granted some days are hot & humid but I haven't found it a problem with enjoying my plants.I'm retired so I have lots of time to nip out & check things.I live on Long Island so that's probably a little better than the temps you get in NC.

    Could you take pictures? I would love to see your greenhouse and how it is set up.
