It smells like butter!

It grew two buds, but the first one opened and I think because of the butter smelling, it attracted some insect that damaged the lip and after about two weeks it withered. But the second bud remained and is now in its splendor. FS 2".

I think it is a type form, normal, not so rounded and full, but species-like and I love it. Very cute.

Hope you like it too.

Beautiful!
I lost one of mine a few days after I got it by leaf rot over night... probably too much water after repotting.

This is a really nice one, Mario.
.........It smells like butter!.......
I sniffed at mine which is flowering at the moment, too. I detected a very faint scent but I can't say whether it is like butter/mante ?

Oh, yes... to me it smells like butter. Even more, I think due smelling, the second flower was bitten by an insect :(
