First bloom Phalaenopsis mariae

Phalaenopsis mariae is a species with a purported range from Sabah to the Philippines. It has one of the most peculiar fragrance from the genus Phalaenopsis, because it is smells exactly like freshly zested tangerines. The much varied olfactory notes that are presented by this genus remains one of the most intriguing aspects in the diversification of this orchid taxon, and a major reason for this genus as being a favorite among orchid collectors. As such, I'm hoping to blog soon about the scents produced by the different Phalaenopsis species, accounted through personal experience and from descriptions by others.
