    Liparis reflexa

    This little stinker, Liparis reflexa, is starting its flowering this year. There are two inflorescences so the resulting scent will be delightful as they open their flowers . I can't help feeling that from a certain angle the plant is trying to tell me something.

    Photos of previous flowering for reference as I don't seem to have posted that here in the past.

    About the best estimation would be a couple of dozen wet nappies (diapers) left in a plastic bag to mature for a month or so.

    The third pic in the first post does have a rather avian feel to it........
    Judge not lest ye be judged creates a cesspool. Judge others and prepare to be judged by them.
    Just know when to keep the verdict to yourself.

    The plant today, still out in an unheated greenhouse (UK)



    The word 'Bird' still comes to mind when I examine the flowers.
