    Pabstiella dracula is found in Brazil at elevations of 700 to 900 meters. Mine has beautiful dark flowers that last a little more than a week. I got her last year in November and blooms now for the first time. According to IOSPE it is a warm growing species. Well then she must have enjoyed last summer with temps as high as 40C. Now she is in a cool to temperate orchidarium and is doing just fine.:)

    An interesting species, but it messes my mind when an orchid has two genera in its name.

    Beautiful flower, that color is so saturated… I would have a hard time not touching those flowers; nature can create so much beauty!
