    Description:

    Well-established blooming size plant in a 3.5" pot. 

    The coconut cream pie orchid! With some orchids, they're fragrant but it's a stretch to call them "chocolate" or "vanilla". With this plant it smells like there is a pie in the oven!

    This plant is one of our favorites. It grows fast and flowers well when treated nicely. The flowers are small (1.5" across) but a plant in a 6" pot may have 100 or more at the same time.

    Cool to warm climate, bright indirect light, let dry out between light waterings in winter.
