Acianthera bragae

Acianthera bragae, also known as Pleurothallis sarracenia, is a tiny creeping species with terete (pencil-like) leaves.  The leaves are 3cm long and grow in a row on a creeping stem.  The 2cm flowers usually comes in pairs with the flowers facing each other, but occasionally as one.  The species is from Brazil.  I grow it mounted and with cool temperatures.

  3. He did not know the plant, the flowers are really original. Here the Pleurothallis are difficult to grow, too much heat. Best regards
