I found a flower on one of my visits to Comfamiliar de Narino-Chilvi. I honestly did not expect it to survive, or to produce more flowers. I was simply bringing my wife a pretty bloom with the plant attached hehe!
However, this flower is still kicking at my little balcony jungle, & I am wondering if it is some sort of Orchid. It is very tiny though.
Any help with an ID would be appreciated.
Some good news for anyone who is interested in my little jungle. I just rented a 2 bedroom house with a back yard bigger than the house & a little 5 foot wide L shaped run of yard space in the front. My jungle, & my wife's collection of pretty flowers just got proper space to grow.

|Noel, I love the pictures. I know I have seen this plant before, but I can't come up with a name. But it is not an Orchid.

|The blooms remind me of a Streptocarpus, but I think the leaves are far too smooth. You might want to post it on the I.D. forum if you don't have your answer yet!
In the end, only kindness matters.
Science is not the answer, it is the question.
