This tiny little Phalaenopsis is a warm growing epiphyte found on lower elevations in the eastern Himalayas and further south across Indochinese peninsula. This is the first flowering for my orchid, and it produced a very short inflorescence with one small flower, but it is a cute one. The flower is only about 2 cm big and the whole plant is not more than 6 cm across. I grow this mounted on cork in the warm vivarium under medium/low light.
