|This epiphytic or lithophytic orchid grows on rocks in open forests
around Brisbane. It grows on north facing rock faces with little or
no protection from the sun. Its tiny bulbs can easily be confused with
It consists of strings of crowded flattened spherical pseudobulbs
2 to 3mm diameter. The psudobulbs are green where the plant grows in shade
but red when growing in full sun.
The psudobulbs have tiny leaves
1 to 2mm long on young bulbs which die on the older bulbs. The plant
has short stubby roots 1mm long which are only just long enough to secure
the pseudobulbs to the rock.
