Pleurothalis cypripedioideae profile

I took my Friday off  to be able to go the San Francisco Orchid Show. This year, I was a little more prepare and went with my wish list….a long wish list! And I was lucky, I found most of the orchid I was looking and  little more than that.

My first jewel is this Pleurothallis cypripedioideae. This orchid is found in Ecuador and Peru at elevations of 350 to 1000 meters. Flower was close yesterday and started to open today.
