    Miniature species resembling more common Schoenorchis fragrans.

    Alexey, that is really nice. Is it roughly the same size as fragrans? Looks like you are growing it on one of your mesh tubes?

    Kelly, yes it is in a simple mesh tube filled with small size bark.

    According to Bakers' data Sns fragrans is slightly smaller than Sns pachyacris. I have different plant proportions. My Sns pachiacris is smaller than my Sns fragrans, but that is not a true comparison. Plant of that threat is just a first time bloomer and Sns fragrans is well matured, approximately 7 years old plant.
