Tolumnia hawkesiana

Tolumnia hawkesiana. This little Tolumnia is growing in a mass over a mounted Schomburkia. It seems to grow in mid air with very little in the way of root attachments to the bark mount. This is the first time it's bloomed for me and it is quite a delight. In nature, this Tolumnia is from the North coast of Cuba where it grows in low shrubs along the ocean where it rarely rains. They derive their moisture from evening coastal mists.
