This is a common, readily available plant from most nurseries.
There is only a slight hint of a scent in the morning, mostly after watering and when the sun is directly on it, but the main time is for hours in the evenings when it is detectable as soon as I enter the grow-room.

I didn't know it had Nodosa in its make-up so I've just rumbled that it probably explains the evening scent :lol:
Its canes are about 30cm and unfortunately most Nurseries usually mean those abroad, this one came from Claessen's although I have seen them on UK sites.
Just tried Burnhams and Ray Creek but not on their current listings today although they may have had them in the past.

Hope you find one if you're looking, mine's only in its second year so not enough growth yet otherwise I could have split a cane from it?

With a shape like that there's no way it wouldn't have nodosa in it!

I imagine it'll be impressive when its bigger, so don't even think of taking backbulbs off!

I have this too - mine's more orangey than yellow and in flower now too. It's a great little plant: compact, reliable and easy.

That'll be the Blc. Orange Yellow Bird then ? ;)

As you say, they are nice looking, troublefree plants.

It's a lovely hybrid easy grower tolerates almost everything. The first time I came across this was in National Orchid Graden in Singapore planted out in full Sun all day,
