Orchids with a strong scent Male

If you can provide suitable light, a Jackfowliera (Iwanagara) Apple Blossom would be a pretty easy grower under typical household temps, and isn't too picky about water. There are several clones on the market, and the scent varies greatly in variety and intensity between the clones. First off, avoid the clone sold as a Better Gro bag baby, known as "C". No fragrance whatsoever from what I've heard. From my own personal experience, 'Fantasy' or 'Hihimanu' are the most powerfully fragrant clones, with a single bloom of either filling a room with fragrance. 'Fantasy' smells very much like an old fashioned rose, while 'Hihimanu' has a more typical Cattleya fragrance. The 'Fangtastic' and 'NN' clones are also nicely fragrant, but not as powerfully so. They do however tend to produce more flowers per spike, so things even out a bit.
Be who you are and say what you think. Those who matter don't mind and those who mind don't matter.
