This little wonderful orchid comes from the international exhibition of orchids in Esslingen I visited last September. It was my first purchase from Orchideen Lucke together with a young phalaenopsis lueddemanniana.
What caught my attention was the flower color, it´s orange with golden reflexes, glittering!
I read some information on the net about Ceratostylis rubra and I also asked the seller to be sure. Temperature and humidity in my mini orchidarium seem to be good for this plant, so here it is!
