Phalaenopsis parishii

I bought this Phalaenopsis during the Pacific Orchid Exposition at Andy's Orchids three or maybe four years ago. It's my first bloom. It's a miniature orchid, and my plant has leaves that are less than 2 cm although my book says that they grow to 12x5cm. They are also deciduous in the wild but evergreen in cultivation. Mine didn't bloom until something triggered it to lose all its leaves this winter. I had one previously (given away when I moved) and it had a sweet fragrance in the morning. I was eager to get another, although they have been rather tricky to grow.
