    Default Stereochilus dalatensis

    I am always amazed when this plant flowers, it doesn't have much by way of roots , so the daily spraying is perhaps a necessity. But it seems to like it, and has a couple of nice little new growths developing too as you will see. You can guess the size too from my hand . The flowers I estimate to be just under a centimetre across, maybe 8 or 9 mm.
    Comes from Thailand according to the label, although I think this example was seed-raised in Belgium
