Easiest/Prettiest Micro Orchid Species? Female

Since you like Phals, have you thought about Phalaenopsis japonica (formerly Sedirea japonica)? I'm not sure if it's classified as a miniature or a compact or what, but they do stay small. The flowers are tiny but beautiful, and supposed to be fragrant. I got my first one in the spring, and it hasn't bloomed yet, but so far seems happy. It's a cute little thing.

I also give my vote for Sedirea japonica! It's a small orchid, not miniature but definitely compact. If you want miniature, look for Sedirea japonica 'Minmaru'. It's a mini with leaves the size of a quarter.

Completely orchid obsessed and loving every minute of it....
