    Pity all the anther caps got knocked off and the pollen is hanging down aimlessly. It could be Taeniophyllum obtusum.

    Cool orchid. These orchids without leaves are so strange to me. I tried the 'ghost orchid' once, but that did not last too well for me here. To hot, bright, and dry here for it. Maybe there is one I can grow in a greenhouse. Maybe.

    cheers,
