    The scent can be very strong but only in direct sunlight!! It's strange how they do that....now, where I have them it's a very faint scent. It is a lovely aroma though. I need to divide it this spring and "up" pot it to a larger pot. If I have extra slips I will post it in late spring. IMO "Kings Ransom" is one of the absoutely top white Cattelaya varieties.

    Ted that is an awesome Orchid you got there. I grow them too. Right now I have about 5 blooming on my garage is quite cold for them outside. I haven't finish my greenhouse so for now they are inside. Gotta finish the roof and side poly panels and get a good heater for the winter and I'll be set. I got a misting system I got about a year ago too. :;toast

    It's a fun hobby too! I had an 18 x 24 greenhouse in Virginia and built an auto misting system. My favorites were the Vandas and that family but can't do them well here. I still have a Lady Slipper type Paphiopedillum with the petals that get 12 - 18 inches long.....foo manchoo!!!!...should bloom this year I hope....been checkin for a bloom spike!

    I have 1 orchid, and it's alive but beyond that the only thing I know about it is it'll bloom in about 8 more years.

    Orchids are pretty but I think I'll stick with my roses :p
