    Greetings after a long absence! I have a volunteer orchid blooming that popped up in the medium of a Phrag I bought last spring. It is deciduous, and it seems to be spreading. There are little two- or three-leafed rosettes, low to the ground, oppositely leaved, solid medium green, with the longest leaf (so far) at about 4 inches. I think it is a Habenaria, but I could be wrong. The flower is at most an inch long, with a straight spur about twice its length. It seems to be a sequential bloomer. Does anyone recognize it? TIA!

    By Jove, I think you've got it! Thank you - apparently it's considered a bit of a weed, but as I'm rather fond of weeds, I think that's a plus.
