Can you see him?

He comes from Colombia.

This is a closeup of a small orchid, Restrepia guttulata. In this case the flowers are 5-6 cm on a 10 cm plant with stiff stems and heart-shaped leaves.

Interestingly, Restrepias are among the few orchids that can be propagated from leaf cuttings.

Yes, at first sight just a pretty pink orchid, but that face could be on any show with fantasy aliens!
