Default Restrepia lansbergii

My first orchid bloom! Not sure I am allowed to take any credit. I purchased this plant from Orchids by Hausermanns on 4/20 and I first noticed the bud on 4/29. The bud fully opened on 5/1 and today it has started to diminish.

Nonetheless, I am very excited about my first bloom! It's so much more beautiful and intricate than I imagined. I apologize if the pictures are not of great quality; they were taken with my cell phone through dirty glass. This was it's temporary home. I now have this plant and other minis mounted in a small 12x12x18 ZooMed terrarium. I am looking forward to more blooms!

One of the neat things about Restrepias is that they may produce more than one flower from the same growth, over a few weeks' time That is lovely! And really nice photos - these are tricky to photograph, because of the depth of the flower, nearly impossible to have everything in focus at the same time and get a good view of the tiny petals held in front. The transparent "windows" on the dorsal sepal came out beautifully.
