group picture:
unidentified Miltoniopsis (aka "the 30 $ Pansy")   has citrus scented flowers which are  showy and long lasting. This plant needs to be repotted yearly. Light conditions are as for Phals.

Amesiella philippinensis
Last year this tiny plant produced two promising buds, which progressed nicely and then aborted. I am tickled pink to see this beautiful flower this season. The scent is reminiscent of Cyclamen.
Dendrochilum glumaceum        Jan 22. 2004              ( Feb 2002)
(Or should it be called Dendrochilum wheatii, a plant a farmer would love?)
The very fragrant sprays of flowers fill a whole room with the delicious scent of Anise.
