Thanks, Terry. And for minimal work and fussing!
I love that kind of plant.

At first I looked at the individual flowers and thought how they don't compare to some of the bigger latouria flower types. But the overall performance of the plant is not to be ignored and it is currently my favourite den :)

I have two of these loverlies and their charm is not to be missed. Compact, floriferous and just scented, sort of lemoney, but not quite. Very fresh and delicate. Here are a couple of shots. Both of mine are similar, but the lip spotting is different on the two.

I must admit the individual flower doesn't really appeal to me and I probably wouldn't notice it, but this plant is like one of those optical illusion tricks, when the plant is then looked at as a whole (as in the video), then it takes on a whole new dimension becoming really beautiful & eye-catching, so now I'm just confused! :crazy:

I agree. I used to only want big-flowered orchids but lately have come to love ones with lots of small blooms.

I'm finding the same thing. The flower is important, but the display is the maker! It lures you in tpo take a closer look.

I love this one too! I had to get it after I watched your video :) It's a small plant, but arrived in buds so I can enjoy the blooms now :)

I am glad you are enjoying it, Aneta. I think it is an amazing plant and so low maintenance. Happy growing!
