    Default Pleurothallis gargantua

    This 1" tall flower blooms from the leaf axil of a 8+" long leaf on an 18" stem. It is nice having a few of this genus that can be seen with the naked eye. It is the largest flower of the genus

    Cool. Our little Pleurothallis is in bloom right now. I snapped a photo, but it is not a very attractive flower. LOL. I like this one, Ron.

    Cheers,
