    Random Plant Growing out of my Tree Fern!

    I have an orchid mounted to a tree fern slab and this little guy decided to make it his home. Any ideas for what it is?

    A toothpick for size reference, he is a few months old. I think I want to keep him!

    Heck, to my untrained, uneducated eye - the leaves look similar to the miniature ferns you showed in a trade post a while back....

    Probably a stretch since it seems that most Orchidioides like some elevation between them & lowlands - and I suspect that most of the treefern collection comes from lowland areas. However, rumor has it that U. jamesoniana also has lowland forms ....

    U. amethystina seems to hitch rides with things from South America and does have similar shape..... Not an orchidoides but can dream....
