    Default Dockrillia wassellii orchid now blooming

    This dockrillia was hard to photograph, so please forgive my bad photos. I wanted to share it because it is so fragrant and this time I actually get to enjoy the blooms. The last time it bloomed, it decided to do so behind the mesh wire that I have its mount hanging upon. I was watering in the greenhouse this morning and the fragrance caught my attention before I could find the blooms, but when I found them, they were wonderful and cute. I got this as a gift/trade from Gin several years ago. Thank Gin!!!

    It is actually a small plant and takes very little room. I grow it moderate level lighting. It is blooming in the same light as my strap leaf paphs.
