I like the scotch butter color and amazing, sweet fragrance in the morning.
Cycnoches cooperi also has fairly good scent during the daytime.
Rhynchostylis gigantea album blooms in November like a clockwork for me. My other color forms bloom in late December into January.
This one also has strong sweet scent during the daytime but with a slightly stinky rancid oil sort of undertone.

Bravo! Well grown on all three!
Thank you!
I actually did pretty bad on Cycnoches and other related genera this year. My long vacation coincided with bud formation period of most of these and oh well...at least I got to see some blooms on them.
Much better luck next year! :)
Rhynchostylis gigantea is such a reliable fella! :)
