Stelis Species from Bolivia

This Stelis is from J&L, labeled only with “Stelis sp. Bolivia” and the date it was last repotted.  It was not blooming when I bought it this past summer at Parkside’s OrchidFest.  However, it was happy enough staying fairly soggy in a semi-shady spot on my windowsill above the kitchen sink to reward me now with three spikes.  It’s really still in-bud, but a few flowers have opened a light pink with red centers.   The flowers are 1/8″ to 3/16″ across — less than 1/4″ for sure.  The pot is a 2″ pot.
