This just popped today. Not fully open but I wanted to get some photos since I know that the blooms do not last very long. The fragrance is very powerful. I live in a four level house and even with the plant on the lowest level I can smell it throughout the entire house. Purchased from Orchids Ltd several months ago not in spike. When a spike poked it's head out I was ecstatic. I'll post more pictures as it continues to open. Very challenging to take pictures. I had to lay on my back on the floor and point the camera up. Thankfully my back didn't go out!

Very challenging to grow these orchids. And many times, they are not considered small plants.
However, they are very beautiful orchids. Mysterious, confusing, and intensely fragrant are just a few of their attributes.
Wonderful job in growing such a gorgeous plant!!! 👍
