    Flower is about 0.4" long. It is one of my favorite Pleurothallis species mainly because of its deep purple color.

    You have plants I've never heard of (until now)
    Thanks for helping us to an education in a fun way!

    This one's lovely and cute. I want one, but can't get it yet b/c I'm helping the little bulbo aestivale recuperate from a mold attack.

    The roots and plant look fragile but You don't want to keep that one constant wet. The growths can rot easily if it is too wet. Mine(on bare cork mount) is outside now and I water it very other day. If you grow it inside, good air movement is important.

    Tom, I had the wee bulbo on my windowsill, but the window was closed and it was wet a lot of the time, but it seemed to be doing so well. I figured I was compensating for the very dry conditions in the house. But now it is getting H2O2 treatments and is getting air movement. I hope it will get better soon.
    Maybe I put it outside while it's still warm?
