Pleurothalis means side of the leaf because most of the Pleurothalis have flowers only in one side of the stem. This Pleurothalis is a small tough plants with roundish purplish leaves have a chain of small red flowers lying in center. I like the Pleurothalis because they have these little flowers in the middle of the leaf. They are difficulty to culture in my appartment because they require cold condition to grow.
Culture condition: bright light to moderate shade, cold to cool temperatures,little lesss water than with most other Pleurothallis but never dry.
