SVO 9683 Clowesetum Afterglow (Cl. Rebecca Northern ‘Grapefruit Pink’ x Ctsm. spitzii ‘SVO Gold’) is blooming for me for the first time!! 😍
It’s like a soft pale yellow & slightly larger version of Rebecca Northern.
Typical semi-sweet menthol Catasetum scent. A bit of citrus note would have been perfect with yellow flowers but can’t have it all 😂
Cycnoches warscewiczii is opening up next to it. Once open, it will be as big as all the eight flowers of Afterglow combined.

Phalaenopsis modesta has finally decided to bloom again after a long pause. Amazing grape soda scent!!

Psychopsis papilio var. aureum ‘Cove’s Canary’ x self
It has been blooming on two spikes for quite some time now but first time to see both in bloom together.

And nearly all my Phalaenopsis (supermarketienses, schilleriana, stuartiana...) are either in high bud or spiking.
Then, some mini/compact Vandaceous hybrids and Brassavola nodosa are also coming along nicely.
Season of plenty for a little indoor garden 😁

Earlier this year, I got two seedlings of Cycnoches warscewiczii.
SVO 10031 (OMG x Jumbo Super AM/AOS) is in bloom. Only one flower but quite big at a little over 5in wide.
And the fragrance wakes me up in the morning 😍😍😍
SVO10025 is in bud ready to open in about 10 days.View attachment 37257
I love these! I used to grow them and they always made me go wow when in bloom.

HP7, great to see all these lovely flowers and buds which will become pretty soon some more lovely flowers. Can't decide which I love the best .... because the all are great and every single seems to be the best ... but maybe the Phal. modesta and the Psychopsis papilio var. aureum 👌

Surprisingly, Cycnoches warscewiczii is still going and emitting fragrance in the morning although the flower is starting to look a bit tired now and the intensity of the scent isn't as strong.
This is about the longest lasting one of the species I've had so far. Usually around 5 days or so.

Clowesetum Afterglow is still looking great although the color is fading gradually. The scent is also not as strong but it's been open for almost two weeks now. Much better than 3 days haha :)

The mini white Phal is open and fragrant to my surprise!!
The other phals is doing great with buds fattening up nicely.

The rest of the other plants in bud and spike are barely making progress.

Rhynchostylis gigantea (Orange x Pink)
Who would have thought mixing light orange and pale pink would give such an intense result?? 🥰
Very sweetly fragrant during the day 😍
This one doesn’t have as much of that rancid oil note. 😂😁

My white one dropped all the flowers last week.
