First time this has flowered. I got this as a seedling from Eisner orchids back in 2012. The flower stem must be nearly 1m long. Overall I'm pretty happy flower is large and symmetrical also smells good.

Nice shape to it. Looks like an angle-poise lamp with that stem!
What kind of scent do these have?

Perhaps an investment in longer canes will be necessary for future flowerings :lol:
