Pod Parent Inflorescence
Culture Notes from Donor: Parent plant: Temperature range I (60-83°F)
Comments: Parent plant: Fragrant miniature. The actual flowers are quite small- about 1/8 inch diameter, but there are many covering a 6 inch spike, so the effect is nice. (Photo was taken against the top edge of a 4 inch tree fern basket.) This plant has 3 growing points, as it branches as it gets older, and has had about 10 spikes in bloom at once.
