I didn't realize Myrmecophila hybrids could be so compact. Looks apartment-orchid size!

It is pretty petite.

Once they open I’ll take a pic of the whole shebang.

Myrmecophila albopurpurea (thomsoniana) is, according to the Baker sheet, relatively small for the genus. The other parent is C. violacea, also not huge. So it gets reasonable size from both sides of the family.

Geez. No wonder they call that little treasure. I'd call it big treasure. The deep purple lip and the shape of it ----- that's a thumbs down from me (accounting for hemisphere).

That's gorgeous! Quick opening is sooo much better than the slow torture of the ones that take days to do it.

For the doubters... a mature Myrmecophila/Schomburgkia albopurpurea or hybrid can fit into your hand.
