    Default Rhyncholaelia digbyana

    Not supposed to be in bloom this time of year at all but its the 1st flower on a plant we have had for five years, smells like fresh lemons and is almost 6" across so no whining allowed! Under lights in the basement.

    Thanks for looking!

    Congratulations Chris! I'm still waiting for mine (three years). But according to some of my orchid friends here, digbyana normally blooms twice a year for them. And I have seen how they bring the same plants into our meeting both in summer and in winter.

    Thank you Sheryl! I can't figure out what the trigger is for its scent. Sometime's it comes at night, sometimes during the day.

    Thanks Arne! Hopefully now that its started flowering it will every year. Twice a year would be fabulous!

    I made a comment before (above) but I must add that the more I look at the picture, the more I appreciate the shape and the color of this particular clone. This flower is one of the best I've seen. Worth the wait Chris!

    Thank you Arne! I just wish some of my plants would wait for the spring shows So many are completely out of wack this year. I think something to do with a summerless 2016.
