    First-time bloom :)

    This is a wonderful miniature! I love how its crystalline white flowers are punctuated by a very green column.

    This is a stem cutting from a plant imported from Madagascar as Jumellea sp. 0948.

    My little plant has a 6cm stem, 6cm long/3mm wide leaves, 2cm peduncle, 10mm long/4mm wide sepals, 10mm long/3.5mm wide petals, lip 10mm long/5mm width, spur 17mm. I have not been able to detect any scent.

    It has been suggested by some that this is Jumellea linearipetala but it doesn't match that species' description. This plant also doesn't match any descriptions for the any of the Jumellea species described in Stewart's Angraecoid Orchids. It may be a new species!

    very nice! if smaller mount it would look even more fab., Jumellea hyalina flower looks very similar but plant description not... or bit more like anjouanensis, with extra more wide flower bits than described in Agraecoids Orchids, but compare to flower pictures description in a book doesn't sound full ok, spur on a picture is 1.5 longer than lip, but is written it is as long...

    Thank you Calvin, Piotr, Kitty and Gilles ;)

    Gilles, that really says something when neither Isobyl LaCroix nor Johan Hermans know what it is. Do you still have this plant?

    Piotr, I also hovered over the descriptions for J. anjouanensis for a while but found enough differences that may be significant, especially some of the floral dimensions.

    Whatever it is, it is very sweet and I am grateful to have it!
