    Here shown with four growths, two flowering ( maybe spikes in the other two), all in a 3 inch pot ; the entire flowering portion of each spike is perhaps 3 or 4 inches long, so the individual flowers are only a mm or so across.
    Collected as a couple of interesting looking bulbs, found on the forest floor, on a branch broken and brought down in a storm ( I expect) - so I had no idea what it was , and it took quite a chase to identify it. There are more interesting members of the genus - another one is my next post - the red-flowerd Liparis.
