[(Rrm. Orchidom Alameda Beth x Tolu. Orchidom Joyful Dancer) X Tol. henekenii] ... I say, that's a lot for a name, isn't it? The pod parent isn't registered yet, so this tiny plant is just going to have a long label for a while!

I'd like to draw your attention to the pollen parent, Tol. henekenii - this is what interested me in the hybrid.  That species is super small with dark chocolate flowers with interesting features.  But to be fair, all equitant hybrids seem to stay small and will produce a confetti-profusion of colorful flowers. 

Plants available are blooming size seedlings, recently mounted on cork and already rooting out happily.  The flower photo shown is for example only, it shows one of the first bloom seedlings.  Each seedling in this batch will be unique!

A brief article on equitant culture can be found here: https://www.aos.org/orchids/additional-resources/tolumnia-basics.aspx if you are keeping this in the house, plan to spray down the roots every morning in the warm months, but you can skip some days when it is cooler. Overall they want warm temperatures and bright light. Keep them with warm growing cattleyas.

Don't forget - leave spikes if they're green, they often branch and rebloom!
