    Forrest, that's awesome! Pleurothallids are definitely cool--I love the leaves on this one! Is yours mounted on something or are you growing it in a pot? What conditions are you giving it?

    it is mounted on tree fern. I plan on changing that though. It is really hard for me to keep things wet enough on tree fern. I will either put it on cork, or perhaps a tiny clay pot with moss. It is grown on the cool side of intermediate.

    How tiny is that guy? It looks so small. Does it have a fragrance? I love the color. Nice one!

    Cheers!

    Its pretty freakin tiny. The leaf measures in at a whopping 1.5cm! lol,, no idea how big the flower is but very small. No scent that I can detect. People mostly grow these for the foliage and they are reportedly very difficult to grow so I am pretty stoked that mine is even alive and putting out new growths, the bloom was just icing
