Tolumnia Red Berry blooming

Tolumnia Red Berry

     Yesterday, the last of the flowers on my Tolumnia Red Berry finished opening. There are 5 wine-colored 1-inch blooms on a 8" spike.  I haven't noticed any scent.  The spike took 2.5 months to mature.

     The flower count is low compared to the two spikes this orchid had when I bought it around this time last year.
