    Default Hymenorchis javanica

    Endemic to west Java at elevations of 900-1000m.

    The very delicate bell-shaped flowers are 7-8mm wide. Leaf size 2-2.5cm. Best grown mounted in high humidity, 14-25ºC. Daily watering is a must.

    This one has been on my wish list for many years now. Anyone knows the plant source in U.S.?

    Love it, Thomas.

    Looks like a snowflake. So dainty and elegant looking specially with the hint of green at its center.

    Excellent plant .... makes me wish for it though I don't think it'll thrive here.
