    Default Haraella retrocalla

    This tiny orchid needs high humidity and daily waterering.
    It has a rather strong fragrance that has a sort of lemony note. It's flower is designed to mimic the scent of the females of a species of some beetle from Taiwan.
    Can bloom any time of year, and is constantly either in spike, bud, or bloom. Flower last about 4 weeks. I like it very much!
