    Too cute!! Out of curiosity, how big is the flower? If it "keeps spitting out blooms" I may just need one of these!

    Very small, Kathi!


    The vendor I got it from had this listed as Restrepia brachypus 'red form'...sometimes considered a synonym of Restrepia striata from what I understand.

    Cool photos. I love the lip of this orchid. Thanks for the perspective shot with the fingertips. Hard to imagine that it was so small from the first photo. Beautiful orchid!

    cheers,
