    Two plants, actually. The flower on the right is actually that much smaller than the left one, but I don't think it's quite fully open.

    I can't help but think of "Mini Me" from Austin Powers.

    Great growing Dot. PS. How are you doing it? Did you get both plants from the same source?

    Actually, yes. They are both from Porter's Orchids, and they are sibs. Both are the same age, but the larger flower's plant also has larger leaves.
