    Cool Haraella retrocalla

    I bought this mini from a NW US seller. Probably the nicest orchid received from them.

    I have had it for about 2 months. And the bud it sports is now almost fully open. There is another developing spike on it as well. You can see it in the picture. Also the new root and there is also a new leaf.

    For such a small, mature plant, the flower is oversized. It is supposed to be fragrant but on the first attempt, I detected nothing.

    Yes, in the 10 gallon orchidarium (I added a 20 gallon recently).

    I look for cool looking minis that want mostly shade for the tanks.

    The 10 gallon orchidarium as it sits today.
