Psygmorchis pusilla
One of the orchids, the Psygmorchis (Oncidium) pusilla, has bloomed. This miniature orchid, along with the Tillandsia bulbosa and T. filifera that share its twig,  likes to be watered often but needs to dry out between waterings. This is taken care of by installing a computer fan above the vivarium, where it blows across (NOT directly into) the screen top. The moving air dries out the orchid and at the same time keeps the front glass free of moisture.
