    Default Ceratostylis rubra

    Think this is such a lovely little orchid with it's terete-like foliage and red-orange flowers. Four plants each mounted on tree fern, will remount all in one basket after they finish blooming. Plants have been blooming for about two weeks, still more buds to open.

    Very nice. Are they all divisions of the same plant? There seems to be some variation there.

    Don't know, these are not plants I divided. I purchased two plants last year and liked this species so much that when I came across them for sale again from same grower I got two more plants this spring.
