It's a first flowering for this osmoglossum (or whatever the new name is) and a big thank you to Chris for it.
Unfortunately I installed a fan in the plant room last autumn for the first time and still haven't gotten the hang of it. It gave rise to some bud blast on this plant and my poor Aerangis citrata. But two flowers are lots better than none.
The osmoglossum has a vague fruity scent.

It's very interesting, I'd never think of it being an orchid!

I can see why they call this one the Lili-of-the-valley orchid. I think the current name is cuitlauzina pulchellum, but it has been Osmoglossum and rossioglossum.
