    very nice. Miniatum or maybe garayi. I'm not sure of the difference.

    Beautiful! That is Asctm garayi. It's pretty easy to tell the difference. Asctm miniatum has a lip that curves down, and garayi's lip curves up. Also, miniatum has a more translucent bloom with light veining. Because of this easy confusion, I would imagine many hybrids listed as having miniatum in the parentage are actually bred from garayi. A couple of months ago I bought one labeled miniatum, but I will wait and see what the blooms tell me. If it turns out to be miniatum, I will be on the hunt for garayi for my collection. If it turns out to be garayi, I will hunt down a real miniatum. I love them both, but from the pictures I have seen garayi seems to have a more intense color.

    Anyhow, congrats on your blooms!
