Trichoglottis pusilla -- The fragrance at first reminds me of barbershop hair tonic and then after a few days it becomes an extraordinarily pleasant mixture of grape juice and anise. It's quite the powerful scent for such tiny flowers -- less than the diameter of a dime! This twig epiphyte hails from the island of Java. Dot (SlipperFan) posted a photo of hers in bloom back in October of 2009. I'm not nearly the photographer she is, nor do I have the orchid-growing skills she possesses. I think her clone is better than mine too -- I'd love to have a piece of it someday, but they grow slowly and aren't easily divided. :eek:

I like how, in the early dawn hours, three tiny blooms can fill the air with fragrance from 1.5 meters' distance. :smitten:

There's a second spike developing on another growth. :clap:
