I just acquired this plant at my local orchid society. I canít find the species and I wonder if it has been renamed. Does anyone know itís culture requirements?

Hi Connie:
It was nice to see you at the orchid society meeting yesterday : -)
Here 's a link to the article I read: Pleurothallis pterophora
Forgive me if I entered the link incorrectly.
I bought the same species from the same society member last year. It lasted for months looking fine, then early this year it began to drop one leaf a week until all gone. I have no idea what went wrong, no idea how to fix it. That was my second try, so I'll be moving along to other sturdier species.

Best of luck with yours!
Maryanne

Try looking it up as Pabstiella pterophora.

Hi Maryanne,
Yes it was a nice gathering and my son and I went to Steves afterwards. Your story about your plant is sobering. I think I can manage it but we'll see.
