You can call it "desert orchid" because it gets its humidity mainly from night air cooling down to dew point.

plant is not mounted but potted in heavy rocks of bark and coal which is similar to be mounted due to much air between the rocks.

Plant is doing best here behind glass in full sun. But it doesn't like direct sun with is ultraviolet part of sun light.

Please don't take is as a starter or dessert. Maybe it is toxic:)

This species seems to be self pollinating

Slipperfan, sorry I didn't see Your thread about Tetramicra and started a new one

but this one is a true rambler (see Dot's plant). I grew them in small bushes in southern Florida and they were all over the place.
Yes that's what I fear already. I have to think about a rambler framework.
The Tetramicra elegans I am growing also is much more handy.
