    The leaves, while not as large, look very similar to my Spathoglottis. It isn't too fond of much fertilizer either. Whenever I would dump my leftover water on it from watering the Catt's, it would get burn on the tips.
    That is an interesting little flower.

    Nice flowers Gin.

    I think you have some kind of bug in your plants though; I believe it's from the family Tyrannosauridae.

    I think it was methane from this animal's poop that caused the burns.

    There probably was some variant of this orchid way back then, too!

    Neat orchid, Gin. Thanks for sharing (and your dino too).
