    Very unique. It is almost like looking through glass. Transparent and delicate.

    I don't think my old eyes are good enough for me to be able to appreciate this orchid.
    It must be designed for some other species to enjoy ?

    Great photos, Thomas. Your plant must be a very young seedling because the flower should be much bigger than 8mm. Mine has at least 0.5" tall flower and the plant is also much taller too.
