    I wonder what caused the miniature pouch and if it will bloom that way again.

    Very beautiful dark color! Aberrations are common with these brachys

    Great color on this one but I have to agree with tenman, the pouch seems disproportionately small compared to the rest of the plant. Maybe partially due to the angle it's held at?

    That is very nice Rolfei!!
    My Harold Koppowitz also dropped its flowers too soon. Flowers barely lasted for a few days before turning brown.
    Hopefully better next time, whenever that next time might take place. haha
