Barbosella cogniauxiana

This species is a micro-miniature.  It grows as a mat of oval leaves that are only 1.5cm, with flower spikes of 5 cm and single 3 cm flowers.  The plant is temperature tolerant and easy to grow and can produce a mass of flowers that almost completely hide the plant itself.  It is best grown mounted and mine is on a small piece of branch, where it tends to ramble.  It is related to Pleurothallis and belongs to a small group of species from Central and South America, in this case from Brazil.
