    Default Flickingeria interjecta

    From the highlands of northern Luzon, quite common. So common most people ignore it; it doesn't help that the blooms are less than half an inch across.

    oooh, but you have captured it's beauty very well!

    there was a plant of this genus at an orchid auction today and many people (including myself) didn't know what it was, if I had known it had such a beautiful cousin, I would have bought it!

    Default more likely it was F. fimbriata or F. scopa that you saw.

    I have both. F fimbriata is not very floriferous but I have blooms quite regularly (once or twice a year). I have a big bush of F scopa but it has never blomed in the two years its been with me. I look forward very much to its flowering because the pictures I saw were so lovely.
