the pygmy flowering season is getting more and more interesting as now most of my orange flowered species started to flower. I thing, today I had 6 different species in flower in addition to many other (mostly white) flowers. What a sight!
Now, let's start with D. callistos. Here are pictures of two of my forms. Both flowers look very similar, but the type form has shorter flower stalks.
Next one is D. hyperostigma which opened its first flower for the season today:
The next one is a more recent addition to my collection. I think, I did not post pictures of this one before: D. leucoblasta type
D. miniata usually produces relatively long flower scapes. I prefer those species with shorter inflorescenses but this one still is a beauty.
Just to show one example in a different colour I selected D. helodes which tends to produces lots of flowers every other day or so. Lovely. Here is a single flower.
Once I was able to come up with a hybrid of this species, which produces even more flowers:
to be continued...

Clone A is very different from the other 3 as you will agree.
Finally, to end this post I have another non-orange flowered species which also started to flower today: D. silvicola
I hope you like them!
