Pics are from earlier this year.

I will openly admit that I'm obsessed with all things Parvi, especially micranthum crosses. You can't help but love that puffy pink bubblegum lip.

I consider this one of the easiest of the parvi crosses to grow and bloom, and I'd recommend it as an introductory plant to the subtribe. I grow it moist and warm during the summer and cooler and drier in the winter, in bright shade. It seems to appreciate my calcareous water as well, moreso than the softer-leaved stuff in my collection. This particular clone is on its way to becoming a specimen, with three mature growths and two more coming in. I'm hoping that both will spike later this year.
