Default haraella retrocalla

I have this one from last 6 months.... not sure this is three or four plants or a single plant with 3 or 4 stems. Never removed it from the mount and donít have guts to remove this tiny thing :-)

It grew many leaves in my care.... and many times I saw few growths which look like threads (not roots) but dried out. I assume those are flower spikes.... and my culture made them dry out or blast off....

So I decided to try a new thing...... ordered a glass bowl from amazon and placed this plant inside the glass bowl so that the humidity is maintained.....

Now, it grew similar thread like structure and finally that developed into a bud. Hope it progresses into a flower....!

Heard that these are sequential bloomers.... will wait to enjoy the show!

When it blooms, get in close and take a whiff... These have a lot of lovely fragrance for their small size.
