    Very cute tiny flowers, any smell? Is the leaves similar like phalaenopsis?

    hi zain,
    no fragrance, that leave in the pix is from a stuartiana, but megalotus has almost phal like leaves, like equestris or aphrodite, just smaller.

    @mietek
    brown is new to me, only knew the yellow form.
