Schoenorchis fragrans – 365 days of orchids – day 1305

One of our mini-miniatures is back in flower.

This tiny member of the Vanda family is just 2cm across and is one of our smallest orchid species.

Schoenorchis fragrans comes from the Eastern Himalayas where it grows in warm lowland forest which we know well from visits to Sikkim and Assam. The forest here is semi-deciduous and relatively dry with no moss on the trees and so we grow the species mounted and hung high in the roof of Warm Asia where it can really dry out between waterings.

The flowers are long lasting and, not surprisingly, fragrant
