Orchids with aromas of fruits and exquisite perfumes

When buying any orchids, in the description of the characteristics of which there is a note about aromaticity, it is worth clarifying how they smell and how strong the aroma is. Like other fragrant plants, orchids with a medium and strong aroma should be selected individually and according to your taste, because the perception of smells is very personal and does not always lend itself to logic. Orchids with a strong smell will require the right choice of place: they can not be placed in small rooms, bedrooms, living rooms, if they rest there during the hours of the highest intensity of aroma. In this article we will talk about orchids with a fruity aroma, the smell of exquisite perfumes and a very dubious “amber”.

Orchids with fruit flavors
If you are a fan of fruit aromas in indoor plants, then you should look for such smells among orchids. Amazing associations are caused by such varieties of spectacular indoor orchids, such as calendars, coelogins, bulbofillums. Sometimes they emit almost the same smell as flowering citrus trees and envelop the whole room in a sweet cloud of easily recognizable aromas.

Calendars
The gorgeous citrus queen calants are absolutely the best among orchids with citrus aromas. Some resemble flowering citrus trees, others resemble freshly picked fruits.
Calanthe striata, the smell of which resembles freshly grated orange peel or bitter-sweet tangerines freshly picked from a tree, and Calanthe sieboldii calantha, whose aroma resembles the intense and refreshing tone of lemon zest – absolute favorites.

All calendars are easily recognizable: oval pseudobulbs can release up to 6 leaves, sessile, folded, large-massive, dark green. Calendars drop their leaves as the peduncle grows, and when the first flowers bloom, the plant remains bare (from the leaves).

Bent back, small, sepals and petals emphasize the grace of a three-lobed lip and create the effect of soaring, airy flowers in a very graceful, multi-flowered, drooping at the ends of the brush. On one peduncle, up to 30 flowers bloom up to 6 cm in diameter; the snow-white background for the pink lip looks radiant.

Coelogins
Speckled coelogin (Coelogyne lentiginosa) with a light, spicy lemon, very tasty aroma won a lot of hearts. This is a very beautiful orchid with oval, neat, rich green pseudobulbs and surprisingly elegant flowers. Creamy lanceolate petals emphasize the beauty of the lips – with outgrowths, spots and unusual specks.

Delicate and touching, this orchid surprises not only with a pleasant smell. Compact sizes, folded-lanceolate, most often straight leaves and peduncles up to 16 cm high – the undoubted advantages of the species. Up to 6 flowers bloom on each stem, and they open simultaneously.

But for other types of coelogins, the aromas are surprisingly floral – musky, lily, perfume, strong in the daytime and not felt at night.
