    Default Pleurothallis linearifolia

    I've recently acquired a Pleurothallis linearifolia.

    I've found out Pleurothallis are usually epiphyte and need high humidity level, but I'd like more specific info about this species and care tips.

    I've never had a Pleurothallidinae before, so any advice is welcome.

    I don't grow this species but I do grow some Pleurothallids. According to what I have seen or read, it is an intermediate grower and it should do well in pot( with seedling bark mix or straight moss) or on mount, moist and bight shade.

    Thanks, Tom
    I have the Pleurothallis inside on mount with some sphagnum to keep humidity. I live in northwestern Spain and it's humid here. This week we have aroung 90% and 18ºC. In winter, temperatures inside fall by 13ºC.
    Do you think it should do well in these conditions?

    That should be okay. 30C-13C is an aceptable temperature range for this species.
