unknown little purple orchid
« on: April 03, 2017, 10:29:28 PM »
This has been growing for several years crammed into a pot in a frost-free
greenhouse and is now flowering for the first time.

I've put it next to Coelogyne cristata for its photo to show how small its
flowers are.

Can someone identify it, please?

Thank you, Herbert.

Photos on the web show very floriferous pots.  I will have to start looking after it better.
