    Default Pleurothallis killipii

    Does anyone know this species, or grow it? I read that it can be found up to 3200 m height in the Colombian mountains. Does this make this species a very cold one to grow or will it also grow/flower in intermediate conditions but with a big temperature drop in the night?

    I got a keiky of a plant which was full of keikies, so I think this plant was grown too warm, between 19 and 22 degrees Celsius.

    it is a cool to cold grower but one can tweek a few things to grow it in intermediate conditions. Many of these keiki in the leaf axil, I don't think that means it was grown too warm.
