    Very nice. You get a rainbow on one plant? How tiny is that flower?

    Well, Jonada, it seems that I wrote a little incomprehensible. Flower of Maxillaria variabilis is about 1.5 cm, and color varitions from white or yellow to red. Mine is red and all flowers are red.
    Bright yellow variety of this species has a deep red mark on the lip. I'd like to have it too. But I think would be nice to have a rainbow on one plant
