    Mine grows I/W in a basket of sphag. Light is somewhere between phal and catt levels ... probably a bit closer to phal lighting

    I've only noticed a very very faint sweet fragrance -- but considering I have a cold, it could just be my imagination.

    Ah, I had been told that these had been moved to the Dockrillia section. Thank you for the correction.

    It is indeed a hybrid listed as D. bensonae X D moniliforme. However, upon checking those two parents, that in not possible. The flower and plant shape do not resemble either plant in the slightest. The flower and growth habit definitely appear to be Dockrillia. Hmmm, guess I have some research to do...........
