    Default Phalaenopsis venosa

    These are unique because of their odd fragrance. Mine smells kind of like floral charcoal briquettes.

    Thank you all for the kind comments. Yes, the fragrance is very unique. I have heard others describe it to be like ham or bacon. There is definitely a smoky component.
