    Default Pleurothallis NOID

    This pleurothallis is giving me flowers since I have it. I got it with the name P. ruberrima but it's not. If you have any idea please let me know. It's deep red and the leaves are purple with anthocyan.

    So cool. Love the purple leaves. So, can you alter the color of the leaves of this orchid plant by changing the ph of the water you give to it? Interesting regardless.

    cheers,

    Hello BD,
    Don't know, the colour of the leaves are like this since I got it. I always water with ro water with 0,1 - 0,2 ec, I don't know what my pH is. If I have more plant I can start to do some research on this.

    It is probably not possible, just thought it would be a cool thing if it was. Something I would try..
