365 days of orchids – day 558 – Pleurothallis convallaria

This species is new to 365 days and has dramatic hairy flowers 5mm across. Flowers are dark red and the hairs are white.

The species is native to elfin forest (dwarf forests on misty ridges that is usually very rich in epiphytes) in Central America and it seems at home in a basket in Cool Americas where we keep plants well watered all year.
