    A small intermedia grower. The flower is small, maybe 1" but the copper red leaves make up for it.

    Tom, you've got some really unique orchids. The flower has really got a great sculptural quality to it. You mentioned copper-red leaves, do you have a picture of the whole plant?

    Thanks!

    Derek, I don't have a plant shot. If I am going to take more photos this afternoon, I will shoot one for you. Plant is still small...

    Margo, I only grow it under intermedia condition, maybe slightly cooler than intermedia. It took me years to find one of those in U.S and I finally bought this one in May... so I really don't know how warm this one can handle.

    The second picture looks like a futuristic bug.
    The color is really unique, very pretty.

    Tom and Ron, you guys are killing me!!! By the time I find one and order it (together with a few more... to save on something?! so instead of spending 30 I end up with 130...lol) I already have a list of another hundred and one to look for....

    Tom--Thanks for taking the time to get a picture of the leaf. Its cool, I think I need to look for one! Although I can't even find an Epi Magnoliea/Conopseum (the Green Fly Orchid).
    How many orchids would you say you have? And are they predominantly species?
