    Default Pleurothallis megalops

    Another of the newer cloud forest plants. I have a great amount of respect for you folks that take beautiful clear shots of your flowers. This was the best I could do This flower is about 15mm long with hair thin sepals but a huge lip. The flower stalk is about the same thickness as a horse hair and a sequential bloomer. There are three more inflorescence getting ready to open but the array is such that I'll have a hard time getting more than one in a picture.
    So far my little plant room seems to be a success for the cool, damp, bright lovers.

    Thanks for looking!
