    Here are my two smallest-blooming (excepting my Platystele misera, which is just like Kev's):

    Chamaeangis hariotiana

    Stelis sp.

    They're not in bloom right now, but you can get an idea of how small they are by looking at the whole plants next to this white Phal bloom:

    I've got a Pleur. grobyi that an in-home grower wanted to get rid of...I was unimpressed at first, but the little guy has grown on me...

    I threw ice on it.




    It shrank, turned blue, shrivelled up, and disappeared.




    I'm *trying* to find my tweezers and magnifying glass. :lemmetell






    I'll post a pic of it later today, after it gets light out. Are you *sure* you want to see it?

    Default Promenaea (stapelioides x guttata)

    Ok, I'll show you.

    As it turns out, after putting the ruler up to it, it's bigger than I previously thought.





    Interesting thing is, I've seen much bigger plants put out much tinier flowers.

    Flower is just under the size of a dime; the plant just over the size of a silver dollar. This is also in a two inch pot to give a sense of scale.

    So, instead of Miss Wimpette, uh, everybody, please say hello to Mr. Wim. Mr. Wim is doing very well this morning.

    That was worth the wait. As you say, not a true wimpette, but that will do nicely.


    You did good. That is very, very nice.







    Something else to lust after.
