    It's expensive, but it's an auction so the it's buyer who settles the price. You can hardly call that a robbery (no, I'm not the seller, nor do I know who it is).

    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 [3] flowering, pale green, purple suffused, axillary, 1.6" [4 cm] long inflorescence with slightly fragrant flowers.


    So a mini, yes, micro----?

    With that size, 4cm inflorescence, then I would probably say it is a micro-mini. To me micro-miniature orchids are plants that are really small in size and they stay small - like the whole plant is about 2cm up to 3cm. People tend to call any plant under 6" miniature, but many times the orchid can grow larger than that and it is just a smaller or younger version. For example, I've seen mini or 'darling' Phals that are around this 4-6" size, but the true micro-mini Phals are really small. I have one now Phalanopsis parishii which has leaves that are only about 3-4cm (it's flowers should be less than 2cm). I could be wrong in the description of micro-mini vs mini though - I'm newer to orchids and even newer to the world of minature orchids as I start my orchidarium.
