    Default Lemboglossum cordatum

    got this only a few months ago. it came potted in a 4" clay pot with sphagnum moss. i keep it damp. it started a spike soon after arrival. a few buds got a bit pinched in their bracts, but not a bad first flowering. 8 flowers. this will stay outside next winter. real small plant, pot and all, just under a foot tall. flowers are just over 2 and a half inches wide. slight honey sweet scent in strong light. a bit more delicate in substance than i thought it would be, the spike sways in the slightest breeze.
