    Default One for the mini lovers...

    Got this recently, so the flowering thing is not my fault (I know how you roots and leaves ppl can be about flowers)

    Thought I'd share it seeing as it is in the mini section.

    The plant's dimensions are pseudobulbs 2cms long. Longest leaf length is 4cm. Flowers are 1" wide from petal tip to petal tip. From bottom of lip to top of flower (note dorsal is leaning forward) is about 1".

    Jury is still out on what it is... bought it with a tag "coelogyne uniflora". However I don't think it is labeled correctly as 'uniflora' flowers from the base of the p/b whilst my plant flowers on top of the p/b.

    anyhooo... Cheers...
    Tim

    Flowers are O-K, I guess..............

    That is very pretty and a mini yet. That makes it ever better.

    It looks very healthy. Congrats.

    Tim, I think it's labeled correctly. Oncidiinae will do the same thing: flower from the top of the PB even though the best spikes come from the bottom and side. Happens occasionally.

    Very cool flower, reminiscent to me of digbyana with that hairy lip!
