Pic was taken in the live collection of KFBG. Specimen collected from Thailand. The flower is very small, so I couldnt take good pics of it.


I realized, I did take some more bad pics !! Here are two attached.


Very good to learn about this unusual orchid. Thanks for sharing.


Its very strange, they are small but stay fresh for very long!!! I imagine what pollinates them. We dont allow them to be pollinated naturally.
We at KFBG have a special arrangements to stop their pollination. WHY?
Because we dont want non-native orchids at our garden to spread in wild.
