Pleurothallis dressleri with 2 blooms & 60 leaves!
 
Pleurothallis dressleri - this was by far my "most wanted" micro orchid. Got it finally this year some 3 months ago, 40 leaves division, it has 60 leaves today and 2 open blooms. Absolutely amazing and my favorite from all the miniatures!

Very nice. I'm digging the form

Lovely flowers. It is happily thriving for you, to slowly form a colony specimen is exciting.

Many thanks Ordphien, Bud, Sonya, nikkik. I am honestly on the cloud 9 for this one, this is definitely my #1 favorite orchid!

Neofinetia, this one is mounted in my hygrolon cylinder (you will find posts here on OB when searching hygrolon cylinder). It is grown inside our apartment, so very similar to Intermediate temps, days around 76 degrees, nights around 70 degrees. It seems to love hygrolon, moisture. Fertilizing is close to none, since there are mosses on cylinder, just very lightly maybe once a month. It did have first 2 blooms weeks ago as posted here, today it has another new bloom opened and new bud forming. I have few more dressleri, smaller divisions, one mounted on driftwood and grown outside, it is just tiny 5 leave division but it seems it did attach to driftwood already and grows new leaf, however this one on hygrolon is the only one so far blooming. Light is I would say bright shade, since it is furthest away from the LED light from all the plants.

I have been looking for this species for months! lol so hard to find, and I wish I kept bidding after $100 on ebay. The blooms look wonderful, you have really made it happy. :) How is its growth rate on the Hygrolon?
