Cute little thing and a reliable bloomer! Almost extinct in the wild.

You might want to contact Branton Tam, the director of the orchid collection at the Huntington Library, Art Galleries and Botanical Gardens. The Huntington was gifted a specimen of this plant a few years back, and I strongly suspect that they are looking at ways to propagate it. PM me if you want Brandon's email address.

They've had flasks for sale at Paph Paradise; I'm not sure if they are from a cross in-house or..?
