    Default Pleurothallis recurva

    This species is from Equador, Bolivia and Brazil. Within this group a few other look-a-like species belong. These are P. modestissima, prolifera, hamosa and limae. I got this plant with the name P. recurva, so it might be another species instead.
    It's mounted on cork and is sprayed every morning, so it's a plant best cultivated dry.

    Greetings,
    Maurice

    What the flowers smell like? I believe I have this one in my collection also. Some vendors in Europe were selling it as Pthl. josephina...I have another Pthl. recurva from other source and the plant and flowers look similar but quite different also.

    It is a nice species to have no matter what it really is.
