    Gotta love these tiny plants. This one is in a 2.5" pot. Got it a year and a half ago. 16 flowers on a tiny branching spike!

    Charming little plant Clint! Mine is about that size too; do they stay pretty small? Another thing I have been wondering is about the name 'equestris'. That would seem to suggest something about horses, but I fail to see the resemblance! LOL

    Default Thanks!

    I do think that they remain quite small, but not as small as the miniatures like lobbii, parishii and lowii...but I could be wrong..

    As far as being "horse-like", I don't see it either. I'm not sure of the name origin..maybe someone else can enlighten us...

    I need to find myself one of these- it blooms in a 2.5" pot?? Holy cow! Talk about a space-saver!! Does anyone have one that they'd be willing to sell me? PM me! Just from looking at the picture, maybe its called "equestris" because the upper column looks really long- it kinds juts out like a horse's head? Just a thought...hahah...or I could be hallucinating
