365 days of orchids – day 438 – Platystele misasiana
This tiny miniature is native to 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. The flowers are amazingly long lasting and have been in flower now for eight weeks.
We grow plants successfully in pots and baskets and expect they would do well mounted to. Plants bulk up quickly so all in all a lovely little species to grow.
