    My plant has three spikes, with a total of about 14 flowers - but so very slow opening . Still, they last month after month....
    Flowers here about 2 inch high , so quite small. My books tell me that it does come with flowers twice as big , apparently it depends on whether found low down or higher up the mountains . New Guinea, I guess.
    I'd love to get more of this type, but orchids from that part of the world don't get to Europe very often.
    Antelope of course, from the antelope horns - the two petals.

    Very nice. I love these from section spatulata as they are in bloom most part of the year and are very nice. There are hybrids in almost all shades

    Pretty!

    I have a Den Minnie which came in bloom this spring when I bought it. Small antelope blooms surprised me on it.
