    Well here it is in all its minute glory...my Schoenorchis seidenfadenii. The name is bigger than the plant! That's my index finger for size comparison.

    This is a first bloom for me....I've seen pics with custers of 25 flowers or more! Overall, the plant itself will not get much bigger.

    Great plant and flowers! Is this one smaller than Schoenorchis fragrans? Sure is tiny!

    I think they are about the same size...fragrans may be a tad smaller.
