    Ok. I admit a little excitement over this one. I'm a big fan of green flowers, particularly green flowers with spurs, and this little gem has it all. The flowers are so small though (about 3 mm or so) that photography's a challenge. The green is deeper and more clear than the photos suggest. Warm, mostly shade, very humid.

    Beautiful! I'd be excited to bloom that one, too. Is it fragrant?

    Not that I can detect. I'll check again in a day or so when all the buds are open ... perhaps at night.

    Oh, that is beautiful! Well done! I love the green flowers too -- this one is small but mighty.

    I find it sports leaves the same way M. gracile sports leaves. That is ... whenever it wants to. Sometimes it'll be flush with leaves but currently it only has one.

    Actually no ... the label you see in the last photo is attached to a neat little Cyrtorchis arcuata cutting I talked SBOE out of a while back (the entire M. pusillum plant is about the size of the tag you see). This M. pusillum is a division of a friend's plant.
