    Nice species that likes to bloom a lot. Originates from Costa Rica and Panama where it grows at altitudes of 800-1700 meters. I grow it mounted in the cool vivarium, medium light, rather wet and in high humidity with good air movement.

    This is one of my favorite Pleuros! It's only bloomed for me once, but it grows like mad. Nice pictures!

    Thanks! One of my favorite Pleuros as well. :) Mine blooms a lot, twice a year or more for about 3-4 months at a time.

    Mine was a recent division as of last December when it made one flower. Since then, it has put out 3 or 4 new growths. It's currently maturing two of those growths.

    Let's hope yours will be just as easy to bloom once it has matured. It is such a nice species.
