    Perhaps it is the most popular species in the genus because it always looks so much better on photos...

    Weird little blooms. I like the second shot showing the cascades of blooms.

    Cheers,

    @Tom, @Paph,
    I have one which is labelled bicornis but always flowers in March/April. Maybe it is wrongly labelled. I attached a picture: any ideas?

    Lars, It looks right to me but it also looks like Ornitho. kruegeri. It is a very confusing genus...A close up shot will confirm its ID further though. Blooming time can vary depends on the growing condition.
