First bloom. Tiny plant insistent upon climbing up Up UP away from the medium. You can see a stalled or aborted bud on the original growth. Foliage seems dull to me, not sure what’s going on there. Probably needs repotting but I always wait until bloom fades. I love the colors; the dorsal is definitely taking a deep bow over the lip, like the flower wants to see its own innards — which are spectacularly deep green and mahogany. From very inexpensive eBay compot, the other two seedlings are absurdly stunted but I grow what I get, so we’ll see someday. I like how small the plant is; wondering if I can teach it not to clamber?
