Phalaenopsis bellina

A very pleasant aroma of floral perfumes with light fresh notes of a sea breeze is inherent to a rare species of phalaenopsis bellina (Phalenopsys bellina), incomparably original in its watercolor color.
Phalaenopsys bellina (Phalenopsys bellina)
There is no need to imagine phalaenopsis – unpretentious, surprisingly predictable, they remain absolute favorites among indoor orchids and are suitable even for those who are not interested in the features of orchids.

Among the fashionable varieties, almost all plants are non-aromatic. But, choosing new varieties from a huge assortment, you should try your luck and ask if the fragrant phalaenopsis is lost in the ranks of the unique ones. More often than not, “exceptions to the rules” smell like vanilla, melon or watermelon, and some almost cucumber.

Baellara
The refreshing and bitter aroma of the unique beallara orchid (trade name Beallara Tahoma Glacier, more than 8 species and 2 other orchid hybrids took part in the cross), which is mainly represented by the Green variety, reminds us of fashionable summer perfumes.

Beallara Tahoma Glacier
This is a wonderful epiphyte with strongly shortened stems, rounded, light green leaves up to 30 cm in length and amazingly long-held peduncles, producing only 1-3 flowers.

The unusual color of the flowers knows no analogues. With a diameter of 5 to 7 cm, the flowers are conquered by a whitish-greenish color of oval petals and an unusual rhomboid lip, from the beautiful lower outgrowth of which a spot of bright fuchsia pink color spreads all over the flower, all fading and blurring on the upper sepals. A surprisingly unusual and elegant plant that conquers with the contrast of leaves and flowers and seems very touching.

Aerides
Refined French compositions with a citrus-spicy trail reminds perfume aroma of rare and beautiful orchids from the genus Aerides. These are unique orchids with a very strong aroma, in different species of which lemon or cinnamon is mixed with the main smell.

Aerides
Difficult to care for, this orchid does not form pseudobulbs and forms only bizarre, pseudostems all the time growing in height with alternately sitting, thong-shaped, dark, water-saving leaves.
Long peduncles fall under the weight of flowers symmetrically arranged in a multilateral spike with wide sepals, lanceolate petals and a three-lobed lip. Delicate pink colors in long panicles seem dazzling.
