    Default Restrepia antennifera

    I picked this off of the tray it used to live on in order to install it in my new terrarium (see thread in the 'not in bloom' area) and discovered it was in bloom. The bloom is just over 3/4" long. For scale, the leaves are about 1 1/2" long.

    Love this genus... this is probably one of the more interesting pleuros.. I say that because you can actually see the flowers on these without a magnifying glass

    ok I also like the bit with all the lines.

    Cheers

    Oh, now those are WAAAAY cool! But so small - without a magnifier I'd probably never notice them at all! Great job, Sue!

    You really have an amazing collection (and talent in growing). What a nice bloom.

    Tim, you kill me sometimes..... "bit with the stripes..."

    Sue, bet it'll do really well in your new terrarium. Does it need all that outdoors light to bloom? Usually they don't, but not sure about this species...
