    Happy New Year (hopefully)!

    I got this from Andy's Orchids as Ascocentrum pumilum a couple years ago, and it started to make a bit more flowers this year. It is a lovely miniature species. This species was misplaced in Ascocentrum, but two relatively recent studies (links in the blog) clearly showed that it belongs to Holcoglossum. Interestingly two other colored Holocglossum spp. were misplaced, too (we typically associate Holcoglossum with white dominated flowers).

    Nicely flowered, Naoki.

    About that blog entry - cuercus (also sometimes spelled quercus) species are oaks, not maples.
