Mediocalcar versteegii 'Mountainside'

Medicolcar versteegii is from the highlands of New Guinea and has the brightly colored flowers and unusual color combinations that are common in the genus.  The individual growths, a narrow cylindrical pseudobulb and a narrow lance-shaped leaf, are 9 cm tall and the flowers are only 1 cm, one flower per growth.  The plants tends to ramble all over and I've had to tie it together with some mono-filament line.  It is a little bit big and sprawling for my limited space, but I'd have trouble making the decision to get ride of it.  It is charming.
