    Endemic to Taiwan, the Ascocentrum pumilum is one of the most pretty miniature orchids. It's not easy to grow in the low land in Taiwan as it resides at sea level around 1500-2000m. This photo was taken in situ, the natural stuff is just perfect.

    Wow! I definitely have room for one of those. Does it come in white?

    Amazing! Many of my favorite orchids are from Taiwan, I wish I could see this when I go hiking. Thanks for sharing!

    What a picture of beauty. I wonder why I'm not growing one of those. Thank you.

    A very nice clone....those flowers seem much bigger than my plants. Even though a miniature, it is spectacular!
