    Contorta looks so happy! I only have a brachypus on a clay saucer that needs to be "repotted". I wish I had better conditions for pleurothallids...they are all so interesting!

    Thanks all!

    @Jan: most of them are cool and they all flower much better when they go outside on the balcony when the temperatures stay above 10C. This is because the higher light intensity (energy) and the temperature changes between day and night. The Pleuro's love these changes!
