    Default Pleurothallis bocainensis - Inconspicuous

    Within my collection, this Pleurothallis bocainensis always bring me flowers every year but they don't stand out that much. But still I find it more then worth to show it to you.

    If it blooms and is visable to the naked eye then photograph it.
    Both Photos well worth a space on the forum.

    I agree, it may not be showy but it's lovely! Any orchid that blooms regularly for me is one of my favorites. lol

    Interesting plant!

    By the way, can those leaves be used as boat paddles?

    Don't understand me wrong! I love this plant, not only that it's a regular bloomer, but also for it's apperence. But it's just that the colour and hanging flowers are inconspicuous.
    @mr suarez, if your canoe is small and the one who's paddling too, you might want to consider using a leave ;-)
    and what's interesting too: the petals of this pleuro are well formed too, and I only saw this for the first time yesterday when I took the pictures.......
    Shame on me!
