Very lovely ethereal green flowers, reminiscent of neofinetias with the long spur.

Is it scented?

Definitely now on my wish list (have a few other minis from Afri Orchids from Redlands 2019).

I don't remember well, but I think it was scented at night. I might be confused with some others, but I vaguely remember that it was fresh grass/hay like smell.

Did flowers last long? What culture did you provide to coax such wonderful blooms?

I don't remember how long the flowers lasted (it bloomed around May 30, 2020, and I haven't gotten around posting it until now), but it was probably 1 week or so. I grow it at cool-end of intermediate. As I mentioned in the blog, Wodrich's book recommend 2 months of dry rest in the winter. I reduce watering in the winter, but not as severe as the book suggested. I haven't measure the light, but I think it is fairly weak.
