    To some a rather small and insignificant genus, but to me they are intoxicating. What's not to love about tiny flowers?

    At any rate, my question to the group here is what species are available these days? Are there any that could be considered warm growers?

    Im currently growing the following:

    P. compacta
    P. densiflora
    P. aurea
    P. velotta

    Does anyone grow P. ovalifolia?

    Thanks!

    I grow P. umbellata and P. oxyglossa on the warm side of intermediate (up to 26°C)

    One of my favourites is platystele argentuosa, which I grow next to my umbellata. I don't have a picture, because the flowers are very small, but they are beautiful. I'll be adding a few more to my small collection in Feb. at our next orchid show. Temps.: int./warm, bright indirect light, high humidity and good air movement.
