365 days of orchids – day 135 – Pleurothallis amparoana

Another species that generated a lot of excitement at Saturday’s show was this unusual Pleurothallis species. It is native to wet montane forest in Costa Rica and Panama from 1200 to 1800m altitude.We grow it with most of our Pleurothallids in Cool Americas and keep it damp all year. The very hairy little flowers remind us of furry toilets with the lid half open but this seems a little harsh on such a sweet thing.
