    Thanks for the kind words, as you know taking a good photo can take a lot of work.

    I would definitely recommend Pleurothallis allenii for terrarium life, the plant I have was taken from a keiki and shoved into my junk tank on the back side of a piece of driftwood, I forgot about it for years until I started seeing flowers. Once I looked back there the number of missed flowers was shocking. It had been flowering behind that piece of driftwood and I never knew it. Clearly it can be a low maintenance/low light orchid.

    I love the Lep. telipogoniflora, stop posting those! I really love them and might have a grow area they will live in now! I don't need more plants right now.

    Another one from the tiny collection. I had to get the tripod and remote out for this one. Toothpick included for size reference. Its not completely open yet but close enough for a photo.

    A charming tiny Pleurothallis species (unidentified) I got from my friend Helene (Briggs Hill Orchids, now retired) years ago:

    The individual blooms are about 1/2" tall, on a scape no more than four inches long!

    Good guess, its the yellow flower version.

    Very nice Pleurothallis sp. Whimgrinder, if you ever end up with enough to trade let me know. Or if you figure out the rest of its identity.

    I'm sure I could get a division off the plant without too much trouble. Its in full tilt bloom right now, so I would wait a couple of weeks to take a piece off it. It has about 20 spikes, with approx 15 blooms on each! As to its identity, I quit researching it a couple of years ago, when nobody could suggest an ID. Many said "It looks a lot like so-and-so, but it isn't" and that's as far as things went.

    Iding an orchid is a nightmare when it comes to the smaller ones. I'd love to see a full plant shot, that many blooms must look really nice.
