My Brassavola nodosa orchid finally bloomed!
The flower pod split open last night and the petals started unfolding. Tonight it appears to be fully open or almost? So far no scent. :(
I don't know if that happens later in the evening (it's around 6pm right now) or if it must be absolutely dark for scent production or what.
I've read in 'Bloom-Again Orchids' by Judy White that many strains have little to no scent and it's best to smell before you buy. I'm crossing my fingers that mine will turn out to have a heady scent! :)
