Tuberolabium quisumbingii

This miniature has a very strong floral scent, rather like Trichoglottis brachiata, or irises.  The flowers are a nifty glistening white with fuchsia markings.  Only two of the three spikes are blooming at the moment.  If the third one behaves the way the other two did, it’ll do nothing for a couple of months, then suddenly pump out buds and bloom in short order.  It does well hanging in the garden window, mounted on a tree fern slab.  I seem to be able to get away with only watering it maybe twice a week, even though it’s mounted.  The tree fern probably holds water longer than burlap over plastic tubing, or cork.
