Plant Find: Two miniature orchids

I got two miniature orchids in the mail yesterday.  First, I give you, Encyclia dickinsoniana.

Encyclia dickinsoniana.  (Note: the spelling on the tag is wrong.)
Next, is Epidendrum longicaule, which is currently in bloom.

Pretty nice, huh?

"Just how big are these miniatures?" you might ask.  Well, here's a little size comparison.

Dendrobium 'Marie McFarlane' and Epidendrum longicaule (tiny)

Note: the larger Dendrobium orchid is really not a big plant.  That tiny thing sitting at the base is my Epidendrum longicaule.  Needless to say, Christie really likes my tiny blooming orchid.  After all, it's tiny.
