A nice plant for those of us who are "space challenged" ... the flowers are fragrant to boot!
I really like this little flower. What does it smell like?

Love it, what are the growing culture?
Cute one. I have the space for the mini's but kill them quicker than anything.
Happy looking Dend. Thanks for sharing
To my nose, at least, the fragrance is reminiscent of clover honey. Not cloying or overpoweringly strong, my nose has to be within inches of the blooms to catch their scent.
Mine is planted in medium to large grade bark mixed with large grade perlite. The pot is a plastic net pot (like that often used for Dracula). I have the pot in an unobstructed SE window. When watering, I usually allow the pot to sit in 1/2 of water -- the pot itself is about 3inches tall. I do not rewater until the water in the saucer has completely disappeared. The media wicks the water up, but the chunky nature of the mix -- along with the open nature of the net pot -- allows for good air circulation/air exchange.
