    Default Thrixspermum merguense

    A miniature sized, very small, short lived flowers - they are only opened a few hours. And to be really honest, I doubt a little about id: what do you think?

    Love the next to last photo looking down into the mouth of the orchid bloom. You have such beautiful plants, Branka. Thanks for sharing them. I hope someone can help with the identification of this orchid.

    Cheers,

    Branka, do you know the country of origin? Where did you get this beauty?
    Buds of my merguense need still few days.

    I've got this beauty from my friend from Thailand, last spring.
    Until now it had flower twice already, but I always miss the time when the flowers are fully opened: they are opened already early in the morning, and when I got home from job in the evening, the flowers were wilted. This time I had a camera in my hands early in the morning when I got up so I managed to make some pics.
    And I think this beauty is Trhixspermum musciflorum, I'm pretty sure
    I hope yours will bloom soon - waiting for some nice pics!
