    Excellent culture of the plant. Congratulations!

    I have T. woodii and T. quisumbingii - they're thriving and growing but unfortunately getting to flower it is an entirely different story altogether specially that I'm here in warm, lowland Manila.

    Beautiful Tom; It may be a miniature, but it's putting quite a show

    As Mazlan says, there is a definite 'Wow' factor with this orchid. Also if I had not read your caption I never would of known this was a miniature. The flowers immediately struck me as being from a larger plant. AL

    Ron, the leaves of Tuberolabium quisumbingii are more spread out, with much, much longer inflorescences (one plant I examined had peduncles more than 7 inches long), plus there is a central, triangular tooth on the midlobe that sticks out as if waiting to impale an unwary insect. I also find T. woodii to be more intensely fragrant.

    Hello,

    In response to "I'm still trying to figure out the difference to T.quisumbingii. T. woddii supposed to have this "missing" tooth on the labellum, sidelobes more spread and coloration of a pale lemon. there is just not any detailed shots around to compare."

    The article in which it was described has 3 photographs. One of T. woodii, one of T. kotoense, and one of T. quisumbingii.

    An additional characteristic I should have added to the description was that T. woodii apparently has a much shorter more congested inflorescence than T. kotoense, T. quisumbingii.

    I have not seen this before ; these plants don't often get as far as Western Europe. I do have a couple of plants of T.quisumbingii ( and one or two others) and this one looks quite distinct. Wish I could add one to my collection !
