    One of my favorite Cyrtorchis species. Compact growth habit & very reliable bloomer. I grow it fairly bright in a warm & humid greenhouse.

    :eek: Nice! Mine's a decade bloomer, it seems. Stubby little plant, too, and I've had it for 15 years.

    I've got a few plants like that. They may be candidates for this year's society auction.

    Bravo! I really want one of those. I had a tiny seedling once but it died.
    Great job. :clap:

    I'm probably just drinking the wrong kind of wine. My wine doesn't come with a cork.

    Oh, that is gorgeous! Seriously, it is beautiful! Where did you get this guy, if you don't mind my asking.

    Thanks Reyna. A friend divided his plant for me (after some arm-twisting). His plant came from Hoosier years ago. My plant's throwing a handful of basal offsets so in a couple of years I'd expect to be in a position to divide it as well.

    I forgot to mention one of the best things about this species - it's very fragrant in the evening. Captivating.
