    Smile Rhynchostylis gigantea 'Spot'

    So, I saw Arne's post and wanted to see if any of our Rhynchostylis orchids were blooming. I found this guy. I always love seeing it in bloom.

    That's lovely Bruce. Yours is red while mine probably is closer to the type in nature. But there are so many other color varieties.
    I wouldn't mind getting an orange clone myself.

    Beautiful! I love the waxy appearance. Is it fragrant?

    Oh, orange would be wonderful too. This one has the faintest white spots on the blooms. They hardly show up in photos.

    Thank you. It is a thick bloom, Sheryl! I didn't think to smell it. I seem to remember it does have a fragrance.

    It is so wonderful to see you here again. And, yes, one of my favorite things to do is visit the greenhouse and find a beauty like this one in bloom.
