    It's so cute with the purple lip and yellow-orange nectary! It looks like it's made from sugar paste!

    Is it rare, Nelson?

    I just looked it up in Jim Cootes' book. It's the only species of this genus and was named in 1989. Eric Christenson believes it's bird-pollinated. Once again your photo is surperior, Neson!

    It must be because there is a compelling urge to add one of these to my collection!

    that always seems to be the case the cooler the plant, the harder it is to grow...

    Default Although it is from the highlands

    it thrives very well in intermediate conditions. Plenty of air circulation and bright shade. As you can see the medium is primarily fern chips or coco fiber.

    Blooming is during the start of the cooler months for the Philippines, December usually.
