    Default phreatia micrantha, philippines

    hi folks,

    this species comes up with plenty of super tiny blooms, and very attractive when bigger.
    its also called the "fan phreatia", or "rhynchophreatia" among tons of other names over the years.

    i like the foliage a lot on this one.

    hi derek,
    i also like how it spikes out, hopefully more and bigger next time!
    the whole plant is pretty much the size of my hand, i keep it shady and moist, its stuck in a coconut husk and covered with moss, so basically treat it as a bulbophyllum.

    the blooms are not pure white, more ivory and cute bells, if you have a magnifying glass,lol.
    also no fragrance i could detect.

    as i said, this species has a nice fan like foliage.

    thanks to all!
