IMHO a sweet little orchid. Now up to 4 leads , in a 4 inch basket, but only one currently flowering ; last year it had three flower spikes from the three growths it then had, but again, one after the other , presumably as the bulbs matured successively. Maybe I can give it a rest, to try and get them synchronised ?.
Comes from Columbia (originally) it says on the label, although this was seed-raised in Europe.

I must be confused somewhere, I thought I had grown a Xylobium previously with a totally pendant spike, like a Gongora, but didn't like it - I thought the flowers looked like dead flies. But i fell i love with this on an orchid nursery visit, so any prejudice about the name did not kick in.
