    This is related to Coelogyne . It blooms from a newly developing growth with a spike of spicy fragrant flowers that are 1" wide. The plant stands about 8" tall with a single lance-shaped leaf. It is native to W. Malaysia to The Philippines. The petals curl which I find attractive.

    Nice, at least you know it ain't gonna bloom if you haven't seen anything when the growth matures. I like those ones, no waiting around to see what'll happen
