    This is a primary cross of Laelia milleri x Sophronitis acuensis.
    It is somewhat similar to the old hybrid of SL. Jinn which is milleri x coccinea, but this one is even smaller due to the mini size acuensis. It is in a 2" clay pot, in moss, in my intermediate greenhouse.

    I got this from a Brazilian vendor at the WOC.
