    A few pleurothallids are in bloom at the moment. Most of these, with the exception of Pleurothallis (Acronia) titan were purchased from Parkside about 15 years ago when we lived north of Philadelphia. A. titan came from Mountain Orchids around the same time.

    Pleurothallis (Acronia) titan-- a keiki that I potted up about 2 years ago. The flower is nearly 2 inches.

    This one was labelled Pleurothallis sp., but looks (to me anyway) like alvaroi.

    Restrepia mendozae--this one is a vigorous grower, and I now have 2 very full plants in 4 inch pots with lots of keikis.

    All very nice. I have never seen a titan in person but they must be amazing.
