Heres my C. ochracea I do love the species not only because it is scented but i loved the detale in the lip.
I might treat my self to the yellow veritety of this species.

It has four flower spikes and has filled the house with its scent.

I did not realise it was in flower for the whole of this week each time i nipped into the greenhouse the scented did not click, with me it was in flower eveyr day kept thinking that something smells nice. But i knew the other Ceelogynes in flower a the mo couldnt be that. Untill friday evening as i was walking out suddenly clicked it must be open and yes it was.

My last plant died on me it really did stuggle so brought on last year and this one is doing ok.

Very nice! Mine is just waking up. I still haven't figured this species out properly yet, I go from having lots of fat plump pseudo bulbs to having all shrivelled pseudo bulbs with very little change in conditions. Got my first flowering last year after letting the pseudo bulbs shrive quite a lot. Tried it at min 15C this winter just for the heck of it.

I've broken up & re-potted mine so not expecting anything this year but nice to see a reminder of what a classic little beauty this can be.

Mine's been around the 15c mark all year I don't really given it a rest so to speak, it's at the back of the bench and in the inter it might get watered once every 2-4 weeks or so in the winter. But is prob on of then only plants non my collection now that if it dosent get watered I do spray it so it stay blimp.

Well hopefully Steve you get an ever better display next year for splitting it.

I've had a var lemoniana one of these for just over a year and am still getting to grips with how much to water it over the winter, so the advice is extremely useful. I have left it pretty much dry over the winter but have started watering it over the last 2 or 3 weeks. It now has 3 flower spikes that are about to open over the next week or two. It is a nice plant but I think I prefer the "yellow variety" shown in the picture.

I am going to get be getting the yellow one once it is back in stock.
Yes it can be a little fical and a strange one to get to grips with this is my third plant, the first was grew really well but got killed with the rest of my collection when i left the country, then my third one just never did anything no matter what i did with it and just went so far back i throw it out.
