Just to share with you. If you want to have an orchid plant that flowers often and has fragrance,
try to get a pot of Rhynchostylis coelestis.

Rhynchostylis belongs to the vanda alliance,closely related to vanda but it is differnt from vanda.
Vanda can take full sun light but any direct sun can harm rhynchostylis. Shaping is necessary, use indirect
sun for rhynchostylis.

Rhnychostylis coelestis can flower 2 to 3 times a year, producing several inflorescences each with up to 50 fragrant
flowers.

You can buy the plant from Song Orchids. Can also look at Rhynchostylis retusa and Rhynchostylis gigantea.
