    Default Eulophia andamanensis (keithii)

    I bought this one in spike from my OS sale table several weeks ago, with no idea what it would look like, except that it was "odd". Flowers are small, but kinda cool looking, I think. Plant is definitely odd...

    Thanks... the combo of huge pbulbs and small flowers is a bit odd, but I think I like it.

    Not exactly tiny ? Flowers , what, an inch or so ? It strikes me as a plant useful to have to include with several others in a group or display, so as to (unconsciously) make the viewer realise just what a vast range of different flowers we can enjoy in orchids.
