    First time seeing this species. Nicely done Elio, you would think that an orchid with that size pb's would have a larger bloom.

    The flowers are 6-7 mm, small, but numerous.

    My greenhouse is very small, as a result I small orchids, with the exception of 5-6 larger (Paph. Rothschildianum), most rafts, are approximately 250, collected over a period of 50 years time, most purchased in the places of origin while traveling as bonsai consultant.

    Very nice! Too many laws and regulations to do that anymore. Do you still keep bonsai?

    Yes, too many laws, it is currently very difficult, practically impossible for a collector, was once easier. Unfortunately I have no more of bonsai, but mostly soured technical advice.
