    Default Polystachya pubescens 'Glenyrie' CBM/AOS

    Polystachya pubescens is a small, epiphytic orchid native to South Africa. The small, pyriform pseudobulbs will reach about 4 inches (10 cm) tall bearing 3-4 leaves of unequal length. It is very easy to grow, I have it in bark mix. I water it often when in growth but keep it fairly dry in the winter.

    That really is a stunner. The stripes combined with the form is gorgeous. However, I will admit to being biased as both of us are South African. :-P
