    I haven't had much luck with many Pleurothallis. I tried growing a couple of miniatures in an orchidarium, but they did not like the culture I provided. How is this one doing for you?

    cheers,

    You may be surprised that I grow this plant indoor as usual where the weather is pretty dry in Calgary. I put it at the southwest window where the sunlight is blocked by glass blocks, so very very low light. It didn't flower for the first couple years, but it only had 1 flower, then the 2nd bloom was after 7 years. Since then, it keeps blooming non-stop (multiple flowers). I believe it needs to be established well before it blooms. By the way, I grow them in pot and moss.
