    Default Pleurothallus Dilemma

    A real oddity.Slow growing (for me-at least).The leaves are thick & quite fleshy with the flower looking like it was glued on -no stem on flower visible.The leaves just wave on long wire-like stems.I think the name "Dilemma" is apropos--like what the heck is it?

    That is unusual. I see what you mean about the bloom too.
