Gorgeous little flower! Love the color bars
The only instance of this orchid currently on the largest auction website is in the UK and it is listed for $123 plus shipping. I don't know if they even ship to the States.
It's a nice plant, but I don't think I'd spend all that money on just one plant.
Nor will I.
I bought the Sedirea Japonica as a replacement for the pusilla. And my S Japonica is in spike!
Love the bold color! Isn't that a micro-mini?
The pics I have seen posted with ads have been small examples but it that due to its age?
I don't know.
A little research on IOSPE gave me this info:
Found in Java and Sumatra on isolated trees high up on small branches in bright light at elevations of 1000 to 2000 meters as a miniature sized, warm growing, monopodial epiphyte with strap-shaped, narrowed apically and unevenly bidentate, v-channeled leaf that blooms in the fall and winter on an axillary, successively few  flowering, pale green, purple suffused, axillary, 1.6" [4 cm] long inflorescence with slightly fragrant flowers.
So a mini, yes, micro----?
