    hi randy,
    first of all, there is no miniatum found in the philippines, so the info in the net is wrong and often confusing, i had it confirmed by jim cootes.

    now, from the looks of it, this plant is smaller, thinner leaves, more pointed and less space in between. i also find the blooms smaller and not that wide open as in the miniatum, also those "pouches" underneath the lip appears to be longer.

    cheers,

    hmmm the description fits my miniatum..... and according to my source theyre native
    to the philippines.... so that means i have a mislabeled plant....

    no worries randy!

    i discussed it over and over with jim, its just people here call it "miniatum" and it got stuck over the years i guess.
