    This plant is no longer available. We do not expect to have more in inventory in the foreseeable future.

    Well-established blooming size plant division in a 2.25" pot. 

    This plant has flowers that never truly open. Instead, a tiny slit forms in the side of the flower allowing the tiny gnats that pollinate it in. Purple and white flowers measure just under an inch long and last 6 weeks. For us, the plant flowers in the late fall.

    These plants grow well in cool to intermediate temps with medium/low light and should not be allowed to dry out completely. As you can see in the pics, specimen plants form a creeping mat and grow well on vertical or horizontal plaques. 

    If you're into Pleurothallids, rare plants or the weird ones--this is one!
