a co-worker just gifted me a Home Depot orchid that blew me away.

It was a gift he received and he kept it until the flower started to wilt and then, thinking he would kill it, he brought it in to me

holy wow! this thing is huge (flower is at least 7" across but wilted) and it has an amazing cinnamon and sugar smell.

I'll take some pics when i get home but keep your eyes open as this is a treat of an orchid to get from a big box store.

Anyone else growing this? does it have any weird needs etc? I only found one thread on here and it was not informative

Wow! Your Home Depot sure has better things than mine. Looked it up in Orchidwiz, it appears to even be correctly labeled! And its future is bright, too. I don't think it needs anything beyond normal Catt culture. It's on the warm-growing side (lots of C. dowianana), but that's what happens at your house anyway.
