    This is a lovely miniature that I got last year at Redlands from a Colombian vendor. The flowers weren't all open when I photographed it and I didn't take a close up. I've been growing this species in cool, then intermediate and now warm. You can see a close-up of the species on an older clone that I grow here.

    I like it. Can you tell if it has a preference for one of the temperature regimes?

    It definitely preferred 56 over 50, too soon to tell if 64F makes a big difference.
