A modest, unshowy little member of the Hologlossums.
This was bought from the Popow stand at the London Show about 3 years ago, it was in flower and £50 "because it was a big plant" although it didn't look that big to me :? ?
Months later discovered this mounted mass of roots wasn't a big plant but 4 single ones (a big plant) clumped together, so last year split them down to 4 individual plants.

It has a very strong smell of coconut.
