    Another madagascan import from a few years ago, with a dry winter dormancy, grows moist and warm in my greenhouse in good light. The inflorescence pops up inside the new growth in the spring/summer, and the leaf in this case is 26" long (not tall, it doesn't stand up). I didn't follow my rule of taking pics before taking the plant to a show/meeting and it got knocked off the table at our picnic by overzealous folks trying to fold up the tables too fast, so I don't have a good umbel shot, and the close-up flower is damaged as well. But I don't think the plant was irreparably harmed, so next year - pics first! 1-1.25" flowers, no fragrance I've detected. I think these are related to habenarias, and would be interested in seeing hybrids between the two.
