This little thing is too cute but so hard to get a picture of that does it justice. I love the leaves and those flowers look like tiny tulips or Lilly of the Valley. I purchased this in February and it settled into the I/C terrarium nicely. Several new growths and it hasnít been out of bloom since. For a Pleuro, the flowers seem to last for a fairly long time, at about 2-3 weeks, and they keep reblooming from the apex of the leaves dozens of times

Awesome!! I have a friend who saw these in the wild on a trip to Ecuador! I love Pleurothallids (and all minis really) so much!

That one is really cute! And well photographed... certainly a challenge. I love the photo with the pen tip for scale.

Obviously a happy and well grown mini but the blooms are so noticeable against the lovely foliage,so green.

I really wasnít expecting the flowers to be as noticeable as they are but, like you said, against the leaves they really pop. Plus they are held up so nicely on those thin, wiry stems. I was expecting them to lay down on the leaves under the weight from the flower so that was a nice surprise!
