    Haha.. what a name! Cute little guy. Do the leaves have spots normally? They look so cool.

    Thanks, Bruce, The leaves have purple spots naturally and that is the best feature of this species IMO.

    BTW, the flower is about 0.5"

    Wow, that is tiny. It looks so much larger. Do you have a shot of the plant leaves somewhere? I think they look so cool in that photo you shared.

    I don't have a photo of an individual leaf. I "might" get one for you tomorrow and hopefully it will show those purple spots better.

    Thanks Tom. If you can that is great, but no worries if it is trouble. I think everyone would love to see it.

    Default Plant shot

    Here you go, Bruce. Not the best plant shots that you have seen though.

    The front side of the leaf has very little spots on my clone but some clones do have spots on the front and the back.

    That is really cool. I thought they would go all the way through the leaves. I like them being on one side. haha.. really a cool orchid. Thanks for the extra photos.
