Pleurothallis soderana – 365 days of orchids – day 1674

Pleurothallis sonderana is a mini miniature that enjoys the same cool damp conditions as yesterday’s Dracula sodiroi.  The leaves are 2-3cm long and these mature plants are covered in the 3mm yellow flowers. The flowers barely open and are pollinated by a tiny flys.

The species is endemic to Southern Brazil where it grows as an epiphyte in cool moist forest.

We find Pleurothallis sonderana is a vigorous plant that forms a great little specimen and can be easily propagated by division. We always grow the species mounted and the plants shown are on 3cm x 4cm cork mounts.

We grow plants shaded in Cool Americas and spray with water daily.
