    Miniature species from Bolivia, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru and Venezuela (1600-2600m.) The flowers are about 2.5cm long. Plant size 5-6cm. I/C grower. Bright light, strong air movement, constant high humidity and good quality water (RO- or rainwater) are essential to keep this species happy. It's also important to let the plant dry out slightly between waterings.

    I love that column! I feel like there are so few orchids with columns that complement the structure and color of the flower segments.

    Never seen this one before. Nice! Any idea how this flower is pollinated?
