    Default Restrepia Striata

    GI Jane sent me a lovely bonus Restrepia when I bought a division of her Neofinetia's from her. I have had it for a few weeks and honestly didn't know if it was alive or dead. Today when I was cleaning up my plants, I *almost* pulled a stick off of it. Upon closer inspection, I noticed it was a bud! And there are many more coming out, they are just so tiny I couldn't see them. I'm so excited.

    They most certainly aren't the typical orchid, they look like a little bug.

    Thanks, I cannot get a phal to bloom to save my life, but I seem to charm the 'difficult' ones into blooming.

    I hope I can photograph it, it is so small, at least it is more boldly colored than the cischweinfia, THAT was hard to photograph!
    I don't know what happened to the quota, I managed somehow to mess it up
