Encyclia radiata

This baby finally fully opened. AK was right. He told me it has very strong fragrance, but it didn't at first. But just as he said, after about a week, the smell came out. It's sweet like milk candy, that's if you have all the windows and doors open. I turned on the AC for the past several days, because it's pretty hot, and I get heat exhaustion pretty easily. The smell was SOOOO strong, kind of stank the whole dining room. I even got headache from it. So, it has to go out, back onto the deck. Too bad we cannot enjoy it inside. But at least I put it in a little bit shady spot, so the flowers can last a little bit longer.
