Ooh, I like that one. It's an interesting greenish color. Does it smell nice?

Thanks guys! No scent, unfortunately. Jank - I agree that's an apt description. I like the subtle earth tones a lot.

Kevin I agree. I can now add a very nice faint fragrance when it's sunny. This is a keeper for sure

This one of my favorite Catt species. I think I like it all the more for being quite un-Cattleya-like. The colors are very Coelogyne, don't you think?

Thanks - I completely agree with the coelogyne-like colors....I was thinking exactly the same thing when it bloomed. It's perfect because I can't get any coelogynes to grow well for me and I love them
