Sweet! I saw one of these at the greenhouse several months ago but it really was teeny tiny (microscopic) with a not so tiny price tag.

Very good growing, looking forward to seeing the flower.

That spotting on the bract is fairly unique for this species, and the stem is also very dark and hairy. Are the flowers exceptionally dark for this clone?

Sangii,
you always have such nice desirable plants.
Rose ,
they are available at orchid shows, you just have to pay attention to find them. Most peoples lost concentration when they are overwhelmed with so many plants at the show.
Barbara,
I agree that the price is still stiff.
Eric,
yeah they are so tiny
I wonder how possible for anyone to pollinate a plant so small.
I am pretty clumsy, even with a much bigger flower, also the spot for paph/phrag to put the pollen on is hidden behind & not easy to gain access to like other orchids.
