    Probably the smallest flowers of any orchid I have (about 1/16"), though there are usually hundreds on a single inflorescence. The hairs (setae I presume) on the inflorescence are quite soft

    Moist, medium light, intermediate to warm.

    It looks great, especially with the purple plant. Is it under strong light?

    Somewhat, but this species has always turned orange for me, under metal halide, then T5HO fluorescent, now LED. It's hanging just above the Phal. cornu-cervi I posted the other day.

    That is interesting. P. cornu-cervi is supposed to like higher light than the typical Phal (e.g P. amabilis type). I have only one Oberonia, so I don't know their light requirement, but it doesn't seem to be a lot. It looks nice in that way, though.

    I know that this is an older post, but I would love to purchase a division of this if you ever have a piece to share.

    The plant is still doing well, though I'm pretty sure Andy's has this. Give them a call if it isn't listed.

    I waited too long to take a photo this year, so it's mostly done blooming. I mounted it onto a larger stick some time last year.
