    I think this is the smallest flower, I've bloomed so far. I almost removed the inflorecences, as I initially thought, they were weed!

    Nice, thanks for the size reference. Looks like a fly in the 2nd photo.

    Not any fragrance that I could detect... but who knows if one had been a tiny insect?! ;)

    I think that's a rather cute flower and very unique. It might make
    a show stopper someday with a really good blooming.

    I hope, I will be able to keep it alive, and maybe even grow it into (miniature) specimen size - if so, I think, I would have to place a botanical magnifying glass beside the pot to make it a stopper of any kind! ;)

    Magnifying glasses are cheap and what a wonderful display
    you could create around that tiny stunner.
