    A tidy, mat-forming miniature from Papua New Guinea from higher elevations. I grow it in cool conditions with year round water and dilute fertilizer. The flowers are short lived, but it blooms sporadically throughout the year.

    Save a search for it on ebay and you will be notified when some are posted.

    I recently visited New World Orchids and Kristen had quite a few. I don’t believe that they have yet been listed on her website. I was happy to snag one.

    Where did you buy this plant? Can you give me more information and where to buy it?

    It was given to me by a friend. When I have divisions for sale, I list them on ebay under the user name mostlyspecies. You might check with Dan Newman of Hanging Gardens to see if he has it available.

    Both New World Orchids and Andy’s Orchids are currently listing this plant.
