    Thank you all.

    This is one of very few Platystele species I like. This one doesn't bloom year round for me, but when it blooms(in fall), the blooming period normally is long(few months).

    Cool orchid plant. Did you take a close up of the blooms? I would love to see that orange lip up close if you snapped a shot or two.

    cheers,
