    Maybe the other one is having a difficult time getting the nutrients or light it needs because of being grouped with another plant?? Beautiful blooms and color though!!

    Cheers,

    Maybe it feels insecure because this one is such an overachiever.

    @mietek,

    Ron, habitus is similar to geminata, but the flowers are different I think there are not so many Trichoglottis growing like micropera. Maybe you have Micropera uticulosa, native to Philippines
