365 days of orchids – day 602 – Pleurothallis rubella

This species is a mini-miniature from the cool moist cloud forests of Panama and Colombia.

The plant produces a mass of 3cm long leaves and then single flowers on 4cm stems – very cute.

We find that the species does well mounted or in baskets.

    Could it be that the photo of Pleurothallis rubella is in fact Pleurothallis corniculata?

    Kind regards,

      Thanks, I am happy to be corrected. This plant was purchased at EOC Paris and is a rewarding miniature.
