Miniature Orchids are defined as naturally occurring small Orchids not to exceed 6 inches/15 cm excluding inflorescence.

Pleurothallis alata certainly fits into this group and it is my smallest orchid.
I never let the little pot dry out.

The tiny blooms are very cute. If you blink, you missed them.

Scaphosepalum cimex likes a moist environment and sulks for me if it gets too dry.

The blooms are bug-like and sport little antennae

Most of the time I find them at the end of the spikes a bit more curled up.

The elongating spikes produce the dangling blooms for many months. My plant slows a little bit down during the hot Summer outside and blooms best in the middle of Winter.

The dangling little chains of blooms are charming?

Here is Phalaenopsis wilsonii with one leaf. It typically has few leaves and is a rare mini phal. I will probably die and go to heaven if it blooms! http://www.bekkoame.ne.jp/ha/ma-pleuro/photo/newpho/wilsonii...
