    This one came from Afri Orchids about 2 years ago. It has a fairly limited distribution and is only known from one mountain range located at the northern tip of South Africa. Link to my blog post about this species (not much additional info). Photos are from May 30, 2020.

    It is a great little species. I got one from Lourens in 2007 and I still love it. It likes a long mount so the roots can run.

    I have a couple of seedlings from Exotic Orchids of Maui. Thanks for the information here and in your bloom.

    Yours is lovely, including those wild roots.

    I've seen the web page of yours, and it looks wonderful with that many flowers. Yes, the roots keep invading to neighboring plants... I should have used a longer mount.
