    I’ve been trying to find details and learn more about the so-called ‘germinyanum-complex’ but haven’t been able to find much detail or recent publications.

    I think there’s some mixup with germinyanum (Comoros, Reunion), conchoglossum (Madagascar), and some not-real species like ‘ramosum’. This germinyanum is flowering for the second time and it pleases me greatly.

    Blooming again. Curiously two buds per spike. The description on iospe mentions single flowered inflorescences, so I’m not sure.

    Hi Calvin, Just on your remark about two buds per spike and IOSPE mentions only solitary buds. I had the same with Disperis kilimanjarica I see at least two reasons for this; 1) In my case about Kenyan Orchids a lot of the initial information is recycled, e.g. from Joyce Stewart's Orchids Of Kenya into IOSPE extensive library. 2) Your plant looks rather perfect. In nature I hardly come across plants which have not been damaged / attacked during the previous year or so.
