First bloom on this baby. It's a cross between 'Alberts x Sumit'. It's a tad over 4 in across, so almost full size, and a little pinker than my camera will show. So far no scent I can detect. Could be one of the prettiest chids I own!: D

Very nice !. I just enjoyed the first blooms of my 'Summit' . It didn't get the scent for a number of days. Then to me it smelled like olive oil! Let me know what you think when the scent develops.

The lip color is intense! Just had a C. percivaliana flower for the first time, but don't think the lip was so awesome as yours.

Thanks everyone. Silken, it's been open about a week now, and I still can't smell anything. It did open up to five inches across.

Well, maybe yours won't smell. Mine did take about that long but not much longer. It's not a smell to be sorry you missed anyways

When mine bloomed, it smelled floral with oily smell for may be a day and then just oily.Not pleasant but not stinky either. They look pretty though.
