Pleurothallis lynniana – 365 days of orchids – day 808
Spring is definitely here in the Writhlington Orchid Houses with a fantastic diversity of species bursting into flower. One of the more unusual species is this one.
Pleurothallis lynniana is endemic to Ecuador and we find it grows well in deep shade on a north facing wall in our Cool Americas section. We grow the species mounted which suits its growth habit which is horizontal to pendulous.
Flowers form from the leaf axils and leaves bloom successively over a very long period and are large for the plant as well as being a great colour with dark red stripes on a yellow ground colour.
Have you got any of these for sale? It is a lovely plant.
Not at the moment as it seems very slow to bulk up into a specimen.
