Pleurothallis mathildae

Pleurothallis mathildae or Trichosalpinx mathildae, as it is sometimes known, is a small species from Brazil.  My plant is 7 cm tall and the flower spikes about the same length, the flower less than 1 cm in size.  The flowers are attractive when seen close but are very small and do not open widely.


  1. Thanks, Elisabete. I was actually a bit disappointed when I saw the flowers. I expected them to be more open, as I had seen the species before with better flowers.
