Default Trichopilia marginata

Two marginatas I have in bloom right now, very different from each
other. And one has a strong, typical sweet marginata fragrance; the
other barely any detectable fragrance at all. I had a hard time getting
the colors right and the dark one still isn't quite - it's actually
darker in the sepals and petals, but the throat, while dark, isn't
actually black. It's been a good spring for Trichopilia flowers for me
this year. I put them out earlier for cooler nights and they really
responded.
