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.
