    Marni, the flower is about 1.5 -2cm across. It's a pencil type, grows on rockfaces in situ, mine is on treefern but I've read they prefer bark. Flowers always open upside down, at least on mine. I tipped the mount upside down to take the photo

    WTG Tracey, if this sticks to the normal habit for the species it should have another flowering in about 5 to 6 weeks:)
