One of the bigger Liparis species from the Philippines. I've had spikes get over 30cm long.

I have plenty of love for this genus... I'm quite aquainteded with the North American ones, so it's awesome to see species from other areas of the world.

There is an awsome one from Borneo (purpuroviridus) with purple/metalic green leaves and translucent purple flowers. I have not had any longterm success with that species though (and it is semi deciduous). The nutans is a big evergreen, and I have had this plant for 4 or more years. The pseudobulbs are orange, merging into the green leaves.
