This plant smells lovely. Not many cymbidiums have fragrance. The ones do, some smells nice, and some not so nice. I have both kinds and many that do not have a scent.

In the past few weeks, an orchid man showed up at the farmer's market right in the shopping center where my tea shop is. I tried hard to ignore the flowers for the first week or so. But I am weak when it comes to orchids, so I end up with half a dozen plants or so. This orchid man hybrids many species, including some shown here. Some hybrids have only a couple of sibling plants, which made it unique and rare. I hope I won't kill one of them. Then I'll be liable for their extinction.
