    Default Pleurothallis brighamii

    Not a showy flower by any stretch but an easy micro mini. Flowers pretty much nonstop for me year-round. (And as a result I tend to forget about it.) Plant has finally filled up a 3" (7.5cm) pot ... and it only took it about 5 or 6 years to do so. It started as a half inch (1.25cm) plug. Plant stands a "whopping" 1-1.5 inches (2.5-3.5cm) tall and a flower is roughly 5-6mm long from front to back. Each black wiry spike produces a single flower at a time but reflowers repeatedly.

    Wow, thanks for sharing! This one is for a long time on my wishlist. I have seen this one growing at a nursery in Homestead Florida in the heat with no problem. I think it would do very good for every windowsill grower because it is hardy and can stand lower RV's compared to other Pleurothallis species. Do you have the same experience?
