: When I was in college years ago, I went to an estate sale and bought an unmarked orchid. I was a horticulture student and took the orchid to the university greenhouse. When it bloomed, it was a beautiful large white orchid with a golden throat that had a rich cinnamon smell. That was years ago and I would love to have an orchid like that again. Does anyone have any idea what it could have been?
I hope you find it. I understand that there are over 30,000 orchids. It sure sounds lovely. You might want to ask these folks. You might also inquire at the university and see if they still have it or one of it's offspring.
