Orange Tibicinis?
Talking Orange Tibicinis?

Hi,
Has anyone ever seen an orange tibicinis? A friend posted a photo and someone said it was a tibicinis. I have never seen an orange one and I was thinking it was brysiana or christinae. What are other opinions out there.

Mine doesn't have that much orange, but certainly more than many. I think there is considerable color variation in the species. I am pretty sure mine is actually Mcp. tibicinis, it is one of the few Myrmecophilas that can tolerate my winter temperatures (into the low 40's F, occasionally lower) Most of the genus is warmer-growing.

Slow-growing (at least for me) but definitely not a miniature. 3 - 4 ft spike (1 m plus) is normal (or maybe a bit small) Those big, fat (hollow but substantial) pseudobulbs have some significant weight.
