Pleurothallis eumecocaulon from potting party

The genus Pleurothallis contains More than 1000 species growing in all parts of the subtropical and tropical Americas. There are very diverse plant forms and culture requirements from moss-like plants to large ranging plants of several feet in height.

Pleurothallis eumecocaulon grows in Costa Rica and Panama in tropical forests in the 2000 to 4000 foot altitute range. It is cool to hot growing and is a shade plant.

This plant is in a bit of treefern so I just put it in a pot of sphagnum and I will let it grow for awhile. There was a flower on Saturday which was too far faded to take a picture.

Our open greenhouse is tomorrow. Today I will spend a bit of time cleaning and arranging, although it is already in pretty good shape. I hope you can make it. Directions are in the SCOS newsletter.
