My plant is now blooming for the first time. Some orchid snobs turn their noses up at Jumellea because they aren't varied or flashy enough but I don't think as they do; I think they are wonderful! The petals on this plant have a nice habit of gently twisting. The green stigmatic surface is pleasing and contrasted by the crystalline texture of the flower. The orange root tips are also an added bonus to the handsome leaves. This species is endemic to the central highlands of Madagascar where it grows both as an epiphyte and lithophyte on bare or slightly shaded rocks amongst mosses and lichens at about 2000m elevation. While I am sure that this is redundant for some, I like taking pictures of white flowers at various light exposures to show the different features that appear with each.
