    "Amazing" doesn't do it justice Sheryl!
    30 hour drive in the car with it. Then in the condo under lights, when you opened a door from outside, that's all you could smell for a month.
    It was quite the topic of conversation up here among folks who had never experienced one before.
    Those are nice blooms on a plant that size.

    Thanks Leigh! Yes I haven't quite figured out the best growing practices with these aerides and my vandas. They seem to lose leaves quicker than the new ones come out. Hopefully, I'll figure it out one day

    Thank you Susan! It's a very strong smell of lemon or citronella.
