Pleuro ID please
I bought this Pleuro last year and the grower sent me the name Pleurothallis brevipes. I actually bought 2 and both have now bloomed at different times and different colors. Weird...I'm thinking we have a an ID issue.
Take a look at the photo. It is much darker than brevipes with dark maroon points. Also, this is blooming now (spring). My other brevipes bloomed late summer/fall and it was yellow orange.
Do you think this is sanchezii, rabei, burzlaffiana, or pachyphyta?
Or...do you think that it is just a really dark form of brevipes blooming early?
I e-mailed the grower but in the meantime, thought I would pick your brains.
