    At least I think its Harella
    I think it was a gift a friend purchased directly from Taiwan a couple years ago.

    I love this species. It blooms all the time once it gets going.

    Love this and the fragrance a total bonus!! I think I researched this once because I like it so much but I think I remember it likes cooler weather? Or am I remembering incorrectly?

    It has been growing in my greenhouse in PA for about two years now.
    It gets up to 95 in the summer, this guy is very near a fan so it keeps cool I guess.
    It has been slow to get to blooming, this is the first flower for me,

    Actually "Haraella retrocalla".

    Had one in my collection in NH but it hated being moved to SOFL.
    Fun little plant.

    So, to make it a bit confusing for everyone; the current accepted name is Gastrochilus retrocallosus.
    I have one growing on a coconut shell and it is essentially putting out blooms at any time of the year.
