A very nice bright bit of colour, I thought I bought this a few days ago at the London Show so had to look at the label again, but mine is Jenkinsii not lindleyi :roll: , incredibly similar flower shape and growth habit, but nearer to orange than yellow.

It does add color to the green house, and it is fragrant.

Fragrant too ?, that's definitely a bonus.....I haven't detected any on my Jenkinsii. :cry:
When in bloom, these simple, small orchids give me that same uplifting feeling like seeing fresh white daisies in a dark green lawn.

Daisies just don't do it form me......... if its not an orchid, I don't really have any interest, call me crazy.

It has a respectable amount of flowers, but they can have many more, maybe the next time it blooms.

One good thing about all the native orchids blooming, they are helping me with my book about mainland China native orchids, need many photos.
