Sanggumay Bloom to the Max

Quick post: I was going to the DENR compound in Puerto Princesa when I chanced upon this sanggumay (Dendrobium anosmum) in full spectacular bloom. I noticed immediately the colors from afar and the scent I could smell from about 50 meters away. I may have said that sanggumay is not entirely fragrant but this one really filled up the surroundings with its unique sanggumay odor. It was far agreeable than what I could remember from previous sanggumay encounters.

This sanggumay specimen is probably the most heavily burdened with flower specimen I've seen so far. People taking care of it needed to prop up the flower stalks to maximize the appreciation of its blooms. It is really a winner!
