    Ron- Do you grow a lot of pleuros? We have a semi-official pleuro club set up here in Monterey.

    The Acronia marthae is wonderful! Is it hard to grow and bloom. We have a couple pleuros, but they never have really done all that well. We probably do not give them the care they need. The tiny stuff has a hard time mixed in with all the larger plants. I love the photos though - keep them coming!

    Cheers,
    BD

    I don't have many Pleuros but neither of these are small. I find these fairly easy growers. I prefer Pleuros that I can see but appreciate the small ones too.

    adeleae is about16" tall (6" pot)


    marthae is about 18" tall (8" pot)

    wow! I would never have guessed that it was such a large plant. I could probably grow something like that!

    When many people think Pleuro, they thing small and tiny. There are many that are small but some really big ones too. I have one (Pleuro excelsa) that has a 2.5 foot spike with 3" flowers hanging along it.
