    My first polystachya and still one of my favorites even though it isn't showy. The plant is about 6" tall. This plant was collected in Kenya by Walter Teague and I've grown it for almost 30 years. The wonderful citrus fragrance always surprises me. There are a lot of plants in cultivation as campyloglossa that are not correctly labeled. ISOPE describes the flowers as "fragrant [unpleasant]". Not this one.

    Completely agree, specifically when in bright light the scent of this specie is the best.
