Pleurothallis grobyi

4th April 2010

A tiny little species that occurs from Guyana (not good news) north to Mexico (much better) at altitudes up to 3200ft. Unfortunately the high altitude locations are in the warmest parts of the range.
I thought this one might be worth a try (and it was available). It seems to hold its own in some years and suffer in others without great regard to temperature. It has waxed and waned, but on balance over the last few years it has gone backwards. I think the problems might relate to keeping the atmosphere humid and fresh enough during the summer. It it doesn't grow well in summer it goes backwards a long way in winter.

My plant struggled in the winter and has since died. These flowers were growing on a plant at the Writhlington School orchid project.
