Openings, Week of December 12

Pleurothallis gargantua in closeup. The flowers measure 1" across by 3" long.
Now is a great time to catch an amazing flush of flowers on the Pleurothallids in the Tropical High Elevation House.

Pleurothallis marthae can be grown as an epiphyte or as a terrestrial.

All of the Pleurothallids pictured above belong to my favorite section of the genus Pleurothallis, the Macrophyllae-fasciculatae, colloquially known as the clamshell Pleurothallids.

Not all Stelis are micro miniatures. This species produces flowers 1/2" diameter--huge for a Stelis.
I love it when the Pleurothallids steal the show!
