Have this pretty orchid for many years. I call it my 'Mothers Day Orchid.' It has always bloomed on Mothers Day. This year it opened its buds earlier but I have two other sheaths ready to go. I'm sure they are waiting to surprise me.

Got badly sunburned when I first moved to Florida and I lost a few leaves and bulbs but it still making flowers. Lovely gift!

Beautiful, fragrance.

Lovely blooms. I get jealous, when people get these lovely perfumed orchid blooms.
My first purchase didn't last, even though I was told , it was easy to grow.
Now I got Sharry Baby, so far it looks good.

RE: C. gaskellina

Thanks Inga. You have to keep trying. Some are easier than others. This poor plant is so sunburned (notice large leaf), I thought it was set back.

Sharry Baby smells great, you'll enjoy it if you like that chocolatey fragrance.
