Little cute guy, with little cute antennae. The first thing to bloom in the terrarium I recently set up in my office. On the right is a sheath from Paph. Tiny Charlie.

The full size view shows off the texture of the bloom.

Sweet! I would love to build a terrarium. Where did you aquire your Little Charlie?
The Tiny Charlie is from Windy Hill, but I don't know if it's ever been a regular offerring. The LeDouxs regularly donate to the St. Louis society auctions, and I got it from one of those.

The terrarium is about 1' x 3', and maybe 15" tall. I'm waiting until it's grown-in more to post pics of it. In addition to mosses, it includes:

the Restrepia above
Masdevallia floribunda
Paph. Tiny Charlie
Paph. micranthum
Paph. delenatii fma. albinum
Nephelaphyllum pulchrum
Bulbophyllum careyanum
Bulbophyllum (lilacia x careyanum)
Bulbophyllum (guttulatum x macranthum)
Goodyera pubescens
and also
Amorphophallus konjac (young)
Pinguicula mooreana 'G'
some Drosera or another
Very nice Sue. Those Restrepias can grow pretty aggresively once they get established, and then they are in almost constant bloom.
