    Smile Sigmatostalix radicans, one of my microscopic specimens:p

    This lovely lil' thing got recently eaten by my new cat (only some of the leaves thank Bob) but now she blooms on her second spike and all I can wish myself is a better place under a magnifying glass

    Nah, she's just a lil energetic idiot that has been indoors in a shelter for quite a while. I guess she had a shock when she saw that much green when she arrived and decided to try everything. I manages to save the Vanda roots and she didn't take to the phrag leaves though she smelled them a lot. But she did nibble some flowers and chomped a whole inflorescence that was just about to open on another of my miniatures!

    I put in an order for some epiweb baskets and stuff that can be hanged so that I manage to protect them from her curiosity. Hell, she even tried her teeth on a Masdevallia leaf!

    Have a gr8 1!
