365 days of orchids – day 350 – Pleurothallis endotrachys

This is one of our orchid species that is always in flower. Single flowers are produces successively for more than a year from long flower spikes and as plants mature they produce several flower spikes.

The species is native to cloud forests from Mexico through Central America to Venezuela. We find the plant undemanding as it produces vigorous roots and seems to cope well with any temperature extremes we suffer in Cool Americas. Although there is never a large flower count the flowers are very attractively covered in hairs and warts that make them well worth a close look.

    It was amazing to hear the sound of the wind and the rain beating on the greenhouse roof whilst we were inside in another world amongst the beautiful orchids and the aromor of mulled wine.

    Thank you for such a fun evening
