    Beautiful pink color. Makes me think of spring.

    I really love the smell of this bloomer. Really worth it for an indoor plant.

    I love the fragrance! and it's fragrant all day and evening. Strong enough to smell from a few feet away but not overpowering. My other fragrant orchids are stingy about releasing fragrance.

    It's definitely suited indoors! How long does it's flower last?

    It started blooming the end of November, so it's been about 6 weeks now, and still looks fresh though the color has faded a bit. I expect it will last another week
