Pleurothallis alleni

Although in many ways the flower is the more exciting part, it is always a happy surprise to see that an orchid is close to flowering! This pleurothallid is from Panama. I took these photos a few weeks ago, planning to document the stages of the flower.  As it ended up, I missed the flower opening!

Update- this orchid has flowered again! This time I was able to get a photo!
