    Default Platystele reflexa - orange orchid blooms

    This little orchid just burst into bloom yesterday. I cleaned this guy up just a few days ago and look at all the little blooms. I was really surprised. Glad I got my head in the Orchidarium yesterday when misting and saw the little orange specs. These blooms are maybe - maybe a 1/4 inch tall from tip to tip. (Probably smaller). I had a heck of a time trying to snap a photo. Also blooming is Stelis uniflora, but those blooms are so small that I wasn't able to get a passable photo. Maybe after some more of the buds open I can share that one too.

    Eww, YUK!!! That is just awful, Bruce! You really need to pack that thing up and send it up to me -- pronto!

    Sweetness. Been looking for one of those. (Course I have a feeling I'll be saying that a lot as you show off your new acquisitions.)

    If I end up with two, the second one is yours, Paul.
