    Default Ornitochilus from China

    I have two different plants of this species and this year they are flowering at the same time. So I'm in the position to compare the flowers. The first one is Ornitochiluis difformis, the second plant, noid. In China, in Gailingonshan mountain, is still growing Ornitochilus yingjiangensis. Unfortunately, the picture I have is not good enough to identify my plant. Some suggestion?

    love that first shot, Mietek! Similar to the one I posted earlier. Unfortunately I cannot aid you in the identification.
