    That's a stunning little flower.It reminds me a little bit of some of the ground orchids we have in Australia in the Corybas genus. Really nice photos Gerrit.

    Very nice, Gerrit.
    I could always grow these into beautiful plants but rarely had flowers (but hundreds of kiekis). I think my conditions are too warm for it.

    Thanks Alison. I think the flower is a little bigger than Corybas, these are really tiny!

    Temperature in winter is 11°C night and around 17°C daytime. This summer it was very difficult to keep the greenhouse cool enough, the temperature went up to 27°C maximum sometimes.
    My plant also produces some keikis on some leaves, but luckily also enough flowers.
