    I have been collecting Rodriguezias for a couple of years now ; this one is maybe the smallest flowred I have seen so far, although very free flowering, and quite a nice colour. It owuld seem likely that it s theone used in the breeding of Howeara Lava Burst - see the new pictures in the thread of that which I started a few weeks ago.
    As you can guess from the roots, it is grown by hanging up and being sprayed a lot. It is necessary to dry it off a bit as the buds develop or they wil rot off, as one or two complete spikes did here.
    Flowers only a cm or so at max - almost the same shape and colour as Lava Burst which is four times as big !.

    What a lovely pink orchid bloom! I like the root growth in the plant shot too.
