    Smile Cleisostoma sp.

    Bought this also about a year ago as a blooming size. Grown together with my Phalaenopsis, full shade but bright area. Almost a year but it did not grow any roots or leaves. Then I learned that this species love bright light. So I replaced it to a brighter place. It received 50% evening light about 4pm to 6pm almost everyday. Then it started to produced new leaves and I am rewarded with 3 spikes. Initially I suspected it as either Cleisostoma simondii, teretifolium or williamsonii. But after flowering it looked different from my expectation. The spike took more than a month to develop. The flower is very, very small. No fragrance. I particularly love the cute, fat globular-shaped pink spur. The petal colour is quite unique as well. Planning to cross pollinate with Vandachostylis Kedah Bella, but the flower opened just after Vandachostylis Kedah Bella die off (tough luck!).

    Blooming time: Early May until .... (already starting to die off, most probably not very long lasting)
    Flower count: 22, 20, 10 (each spike has different length)

    Anyone could help me with the ID please?

    Lightbulb Update: Just found the ID!

    Finally!!
    I think it is Cleisostoma rolfeanum. Found a similar picture when I am googling for Cleisostoma. The picture is very similar to mine> Cleisostoma Orchids
    IOSPE picture >IOSPE PHOTOS is quite similar too except mine less stripy but more pinkish/purplish. I'm hoping it is the correct ID.
