    A true mini, this has bloomed for me for the first time. It is in the angraecoid family, and I had shown a pic of a hybrid to a friend who is an angraecoid fanatic. She loved it so much she promptly ordered the hybrid and two of the this species, one for me. Have had it about a year and a half now. I don't really care for the species. But it has bloomed for me and the effect of two spikes of delicate, 1/4" crystalline white flowers is not unpleasant.

    Nice flowers on a small plant. Mystacidiums don't do well for me.

    Now this is what I would call "pure white"!

    Where did your friend order it from? I have a friend who is also looking for this orchid.

    It is adorable. I just ordered a few from Exotic Orchids of Maui in December.
