    It is a nice one, the flowers aren't buried in the foliage. The petals are very strange.

    That's interesting! Does it smell? Good or bad? The black edging might mean a bad smell, from a human point of view....

    No fragrance that I can detect (at 10:30 at night). Here is a closer view of the petals. When you get in there close, the lip is prety strange too. Should appeal to the bulbo growers in the crowd. ;)

    Very nice Marni

    I bought one Dryadella species and it has not done well for me, it hasn't dimped yet but lost most of its leaves though. I guess the good news is it hasn't lost any in a while and it is still alive
