    This is a miniature cool grower. I've always liked Holcoglossum species. I've been buying all I could find the last 5 or so years and I like them all.

    Quite cute. Looks similar to flavescens, though the lip is different.

    Very nice. Should it have more light than Holcoglossum wangii?

    It turns out that this is not H. nugianense. Possibly H. flavescens. The plant came from Popow Orchids and I should have checked the identification. H nugianense has pendant foliage and the lip is different.

    I do grow this a bit brighter than H wangii, but I'm not sure that is necessary.

    I don't think I've ever seen flavescens with a lip whose sides curl under that much.

    It is eye catching whatever is. I enjoy Holcoglossum genus, but I have yet to successful bloom them. I am glad to enjoy other's success.
