    Default Schoenorchis fragrans

    Actually this can also be classified as one of the smallest flowers in my greenhouse as well as campanemia uliginosa.Sorry it's not that clear but I have a tendency to shake when I'm trying so hard to focus in on the flowers as they really are minute.It takes a group to know when it's in flower. It's paler than the one I used to have (before the squirrels decided that they liked it too)

    Jane, I really like this plant! I'm too terrified to try anything so tiny, myself, but it's really attractive. Thanks for sharing!


    Cheers,


    Rob

    Oh my gosh, Jane, I'd be terrified too. I think I would just lose the thing somewhere.

    It's so cool-looking though!

    ...I'm guessing a close up on those cute little blooms
    is out of the question,
    it looks like is the whole plant about dime-sized?
    I like how the blooms are clustered together,
    it keeps any individual one from getting 'lost'.

    Sorry -I tried again but I can't get the flowers any better.Measuring the plant across it measures 1" from leaf tip to leaf tip.You can see how small everything is by looking at the little bit of sphagnum moss I have in the mounting.The whole cluster of flowers is roughly dime- sized.Maybe you can look it up on the net & get a closer look at the flowers with someone who has a more sophisticated camera

    oh, that's ok, L I Jane,
    thanks for trying, though.
    I usually find the smaller the flower is,
    the closer, and closer, and closer I want to see it.
    It might just be time to add to the wish list.
