this is in a 4in pot and a nice, smaller size compared to most. The flowers are an orange/tan, unfortunately held close to the stem. Difficult to photograph well with only a cellphone camera.

When mine bloomed this year, I didn't have an issue with the flowers being held quite that close to the stem.

it wasn't fragrant.
As for blooms - it has 2 new pbulbs, we will see what happens when these hopefully develop spikes.

Mine had a sweet, floral fragrance that was strongest at night.

update. So I realised back in Dec that I needed to do something to get it to rebloom. There was plenty of new growth.........its now a monster.........and it turns out it needs a period of cool/cold to stimulate spiking. It was in my basement for about 3 weeks and that did the trick. It now has 6 spikes, and is magnificent.
