Hmm. didn't seem to post the first time. Let's try again. A cute, almost miniature gongora that I got from Andy's this spring. Bloomed a month or so ago with two spikes, three more now.

That's pretty cool.

Can you post a close up of a flower and some flower dimensions. It looks allot like a truncata flower with a yellow lip.

Well, I don't have dimensions. And I don't have a camera that does closeups very well (as evidenced by a very cool bulbophyllum caryanum I can't get in focus). Flowers are 2, maybe 3cm in total spread.

Thanks Rob
Even with the clarity issues, I can see both structural and color differences between yours and mine.

It has a very cool birdwing set of sepals on your species.

If I can keep it alive through the winter I will be very happy. This is the most floriferous gongora I've grown (I only have three or four species though), so well worth trying to keep alive.
