I showed a picture of this orchid in the thread on Gesneriads, but decided to take it away there and put it in here.
Last year in Sept on a visit to see some wildflowers in the Southern Cape we were fortunate to see Bartholina burmaniana in flower.
We saw on the same day many other bulbs in flower, but this was the only Bartholina found, and found by my wife Ines. When looking at the picture you can see why it is not so easy to find this little plant

Awesome flower and thanks for sharing. I've only seen this species in a photo once before.

Do you know of anyone culturing this species that could give us a tutorial on it?
