    Hi William, welcome to the forum.

    The plant is one of the Myrmecophila (syn. Schomburgkia). Possibly M. tibicinis.

    EDIT: Just noticed you said "small". Probably not tibicinis.

    That would be my kind of garden!
    The colour scheme suggests Myrmecophila brysiana, but that one is not exactly a small plant.

    The lip suggest tibicinis, but to me it looks like a color variant of Myr. exaltata. Some taxonomists think tibicinis and exaltata are the same thing.
