This is my biggest plant I have, it’s a no id Zygopetalum, loves the soil very wet, and has a sweet scent.

Love it! They seem to like it really wet. Don’t you just love the scent? I think it’s one of the best,

Absolutely!! every time I enter the greenhouse it is a pleasure for the nose. So I go in as often as I can 😁

I like it very much. Lovely ! 👌 I assume, it's a no name hybrid...otherwise you would have written its name ? Many, many years ago I grew a Zygopetalum mackayi which colouration is similar but not so intense and I was really mesmerized by it. Unfortunately I can't remember its scent.

Thank you Guru, sorry but has no name, in the tag only had written Zygopetalum, and I don’t know if is a species or an hybrid, I guess is an hybrid.

i also have a Zygopetalum that just has that as it’s name tag, flowers are pretty identical to yours, from Burnham Nurseries and I bought it as Artur Elle, have attached old photos of it blooming to compare.
