    A wonderful species with long-lasting flowers. For reference, the individual leaves are about 3.5" long.

    that's so awesome! I need to get me one of these, they seems to be a lot more fun than the minuscule and slow growing Schoenorchis fragans

    Good eyes, Bleecker. After 2 months dicking around with Canon, I finally have a camera again that works with my lenses. I've been waiting to take pictures. Yes, it is the smaller of the two. The one that won the award is past its prime.

    All of the Schoenorchis I am aware of are very slow growing, but worth the wait. That's probably why they are so hard to find, nobody wants to divide a plant.;)

    One of the nicest species in that genus if I may say!
