Pleurothallis amparoana – 365 days of orchids – day 860

A plant that caused a lot of interest at the Devon show was this little species.

Pleurothallis amparoana is native to wet montane forest in Costa Rica and Panama from 1200 to 1800m altitude and is unusual in the extremely furry flowers. We grow the species with most of our Pleurothallids in Cool Americas and find it particularly enjoys a small basket where we can keep it damp all year but with good drainage.
