Bulbophyllum graveolens 'Mount Millas'  AM/RHS x self
Index page
Orchidcorner


Three spikes this year. There is a Fly party in the cage!! The newly opened flowers are not that smelly, I find them a bit waxy/ "paraffiny" and only slighty stinky. But the flies love it!

A few days later -
the flowers are aged ( the dorsal sepal is folded over, but the flowers are not totally closed) and the Flies are gone together with the waxy, slightly stinky scent. To my big surprise the flowers now smell strongly of Cinnamon, the whole cage smells like somebody opened a jar of powdered Cinnamon. This is totally unexpected!



Dendrobium mohlianum x sulawesiense
I picked this one up from Silva Orchids last Winter. The long lasting flowers are produced on leafless canes and I just love the bright color.
