    Happy New Year (hopefully)!

    I got this from Andy's Orchids as Ascocentrum pumilum a couple years ago, and it started to make a bit more flowers this year. It is a lovely miniature species. This species was misplaced in Ascocentrum, but two relatively recent studies (links in the blog) clearly showed that it belongs to Holcoglossum. Interestingly two other colored Holocglossum spp. were misplaced, too (we typically associate Holcoglossum with white dominated flowers).

    Nice to see you posting again Naoki. Great shots as always. It certainly is a cute little thing.

    I've missed your lovely photos too. Very nice to
    "see" you again. Wonderful photos of such a colorful
    group of flowers on such a petite plant.
