    Default Dendrochilum gracile

    This would be my first earned orchid (non jewel) bloom . It only took close to 4 years of killing them to finally start blooming them. I new this was a mini but was not prepared for how tiny the flowers would be. I'm glad there's a lot. Not an easy one for me to take pics of.

    Congrats!! That's a beautiful mini. I have one just like it...it is not easy taking such good pics of a tiny bloom, but yours are great. I predict that now that you have started, there will be many more earned blooms coming your way!

    Oh, Nicki, that's lovely! I think you got great pictures - I can't get such clear ones of my little orchids. Congratulations on the great job with the photos and especially with the orchid!
