Pleurothallis grobyi – 365 days of orchids – day 1514


Many of our orchid species flower several times a year and Pleurothallis grobyi is one of them. We have several clones of this miniature pleurothallis species. Todat’s clone is similar to varieties we have seen in Brazil with 4cm leaves and long spikes of relatively large beak like flowers. The Brazilian plants (with great diversity) in situ are shown below:


All of the plants we found were growing in primary forest in shade with abundant moss growing around them suggesting that plants appreciate being grown wet and shaded in cultivation, and that is what we aim for in  our Cool Americas section.
