365 days of orchids – day 85 – Platystele misasiana

Platystele misasiana is another of our favourite miniatures. The species that comes from cloud forests in Colombia at around 2000m produces bushy little plants with 2cm leaves and masses of uptight flower spikes covered in tiny star like flowers.

We grow the plant successfully both in baskets and pots in Cool Americas and will have a few plants for sale at the RHS London International Orchid Show next week –
