I was hoping for fuller petals but oh well. The flowers have that strange emersonii scent with mildly sweet note. I'm not a fan of emersonii scent.
I got this from Springwater in 2017. Still in its 3inch round pot but the plant has grown so big with each leaf at 8-9in long.
I have another one from the same source which is only about half the size but such a cranky grower that I might just get rid of it.
Then, I have one other large (unfortunately) plant of this cross from Cloud Orchids from 2016 that is sending up a sheath. Fingers crossed on that one!

Hopefully prettier than this! 😁🍀🍀
What do you find wrong with this flower? I really like the colour! I only see some symmetry issues. I also have one in bloom with two buds maybe two weeks behind yours. My buds are showing some colour on them but that may be cause mine is using the dunkel form of delenatii.

I think mine is good average. I cannot get over the image of a very nice one I once saw. So the comparison and the desire stay with me. haha
The fuller petals!! I am looking forward to my next plant to bloom. would love to see how dark yours might open up to be!

This is a really nice flower in my eyes, too. Don't know what you once saw....?? But how is the sayin 'A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush'

Sometimes we wish flowers are as good as the best we have seen. Very human trait.
