    This was a surprise!

    I got in a tiny bag of ten of these leafless plants about two months ago, mounted them on pieces of grape vine, then stuck them in my "orchid incubator" in the basement. Now, 3 out of the 10 are blooming!

    The individual blossoms are 5-6 mm across.

    That looks too nice to be stress blooming. They were ready, and they like your incubator.
