I bought this orchid for the beauty of the flower and the shape of the plant in general, but without having clear in mind her needs. The directions on the label were scarce, as for all plants of the Swedish multinational, the only certainty I had was on genetics, in fact, the commercial hybrids are usually like tanks, if they manage to survive into the store to get them stone dead there wants an atomic disaster! ;-)
This Cambria confirmed it for me.

The Psygmorchis pusilla is one of my favorite orchid miniatures, the size of the plant is really very small, while the flowers, in comparison, are giants. Even the flowers color, yellow with red-brick spots and white labellum, is really cheerful and sunny, and makes a nice contrast with the green moss that grows on the mount.

I waited a long time this event, international exhibitions are good to spend a beautiful day in the middle of a sea of ​​blooming orchids! I visited the site of the international exhibition of orchids Esslingen 2011 edition and there were many photos that I was really impressed, especially those relating to exhibitions, spectacular flower beds with trees and streams, all covered with ferns, mosses and hundreds of orchids in flower, I couldn't miss it! This was my first visit to the exhibition of Esslingen and was nice even though I expected that the fair was much larger, the exhibitors were provided but not as hoped and the prices were inflated almost all of which unfortunately is often the case here in  events  of strong appeal. Unfortunately many of the pictures I took did not turn out well because of the low light and of my camera, a bit dated, anyway there's still something  ...

I bought this delightful miniature orchid in mid-July from my fauvorite orchid seller Orchids & More.
It was already flowering and the relocation did not bother, the flowers lasted more then two weeks before starting to fade quietly. During this period it also began vegetative growth,  a new shoot appeared at the base of the bigger fan of leaves. I thought I must wait until the maturation of the new fan to get further blooms, however the stem, as soon as it lost flowers, restarted working immediately!
