Another one of the little rams head monsters.

Scaphosepalum swertifolium blooming for the first time under my care. All of the previous buds had blasted and one spike died back due to some humidity fluctuations. It doesnít seem to need ultra high humidity like most of the Pleuros, just good humidity and consistent. Itís getting a little too much light right now but it is doing very well in the new terrarium and making 2 new spikes and 3 new growths.
All of my Scaphs seem to be on a roll since moving them in the terrarium and the rapax and ovulare are both making some new inflorescences and should be blooming soon

Again,super fotos of a great bloom. Just a suggestion...someone on OB asked for suggestions of mini plants for a project or terrarium. Perhaps you could shoot this plant next to something for scale. I think it's not familiar to some how tiny these are and an attractive addition for the right conditions. Nice work SJ.

Outstanding! Great photography!
