Delicate and delicious...looks like it's in good growth with the nice roots and the new leaves forming!

Nice! Can we see the terrarium setup for growing your minis? How is it cooled?

I didn't have enough space, so this one was just in a big rubber maid container with LED shop lights on the top. It is getting moved to a warmer growth tent, but here is the intermediate-cool growth area. I use just natural cooling, if it is too hot (rarely happens around here), I open the window.

This is a tiny species and it is one of the smallest orchids which I have grown. The diameter of the flower is about 5mm. I got this 2 years ago, and there is one original leaf left, which is bigger. So it is probably still recovering from the import, and it might become bigger. It is from Afri Orchids.

Very interesting little plant! It seems to be heading the right way. It probably needs watering each day and, in the Summer, twice: in my experience, that is necessary for miniature monopodials. Wish you success!
