    Cool Trichosalpinx orbicularis

    As I was doing its once monthly seaweed treatment, I noticed this little guy was in bloom. Flowers are quite small but larger than the trichoglottis triflora's flowers. I hope the pictures show it well enough. This is the first blooming of this for me. It had previously bloomed. I did not detect any scent when I sniffed it.

    The blooms are on the underside of each leaf. I have 2 leaves with blooms. There are 2 blooms per leaf. But in my images, barely in focus, you cannot see the second one. It resides in the orchidarium. It looked dry and diseased when it arrived. So I soaked it in fungicide and it seems to have responded. Now it looks less dry and the formerly diseased leaves will have to eventually die off.

    so cute. You can hardly notice it with the color. Unless you really have a keen eye. Just like looking for a golden treasure...lol

    I did nearly miss them. At first I thought it was dried up, expired from a previous blooming but decided to look at it closer.
