Renanthera Tom Thumb

This is one impressive plant! I think it's destined for eBay, although it seems that there's not much bidding activity for orchids any longer.

The spike keeps growing longer and longer, with more buds being added to the end. It's now over two feet, and so heavy that I had to wire the tiny 5" plant up because it was being pulled over! The inflorescence last year only had five blooms, and was maybe 8" long.

The blooms are quite large, and as you can see, a vivid, deep red.

Those are gorgeous! I was intrigued by the name of this plant expecting something really tiny. I guess tiny is relative.
