    Very nice, Mat! How are you growing it? I continue to struggle with Ophrys

    Thanks!

    I have it in a small terracotta and a kanuma-based mix. I set it up on a basement windowsill while dormant so it doesn’t get any water, and I water maybe once a week during the growing season. It’s in my intermediate/cool orchid case.

    Beautifully photographed! I think this is one of the most beautiful species in the genus.
