That's great information. I saw Prosthechea fragrans growing near the Amazon in Brazil, so clearly it is a very adaptable species to be able to also grow at a higher, cooler elevation.

Scent is so subjective... Prosthechea radiata has a reputation of smelling sort of like that, or urine to some people. To me, it's more like wintergreen. I'm pretty sure the pictured flower isn't...
