My Lepanthopsis astrophora orchid is blooming again.  Actually, it's never really stopped since it first bloomed last March, though it did slow down a bit when it was really dark this winter.  But now the days are getting longer again, and it's blooming on two new spikes!

Despite its small size, this is an incredibly beautiful orchid.  Each flower is 1/8" tall, but so perfectly formed, and the color is an amazing glowing fuchsia-purple.

It takes my breath away.
