    Default Platystele beatricis

    Two years ago I saw somewhere a little, charming blooming orchid and I needed to have one in any way - it was Platystele umbellata. I did an order, got it soon and when it blossomed, I found out that this is Platystele beatricis. OK, this one is sharming too, I did't get too angry - and I ordered another one P.umbellata, wait until flowering and found out that there's been given another P. beatricis to me. Recently I ordered another one, and - you won't believe - I got the third Platystele beatricis.... now I have 3 P. beatricis (someone needs one?) and still no Platystele umbellata
    My next order: Platystele beatricis, I do belive I'll get the desired one

    Sorry you haven't gotten the right one yet. The flowers are very cute, though. I love the first picture with the droplets.

    Wonderful how you displayed these for photographing. Branka if you end up with four of these (I hope you get the desired Platystele umbellata) maybe you could trade with someone in Europe/Slovenia or you can open a orchid nursery and specialize in............hehe AL

    Nice photos. If you live here, I will take one from you and you can have piece of my P. umbellata.

    I think P. umbellata is a bit over rated, for my taste anyway.

    I love that first photograph, Branka. Those droplets of water give it an ethereal quality.
