Pleurothallis . tribuloides  

This adorable miniature species is found in Mexico, Guatemala, Belize, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Panama, Dominican Republic, Haiti, Cuba, Jamaica and Suriname at elevations from 1,000 to 4,300 ft. Very easy to grow and bloom, it does well in warm to intermediate conditions with year round water, moderate light, high humidity, and good air circulation. It can be grown either potted or mounted. It produces a profusion of brick-red, beak-shaped flowers (resembling tiny lobster claws) that surround the base of this miniature plant. Erect inflorescence is 0.25 inch long with 1—4 long-lasting 0.25-inch red flowers that bloom successively. Blooms off and on throughout the year. We have found this species to be an easy grower with warmth tolerance for us and not as picky about water quality as some other Pleurothallis. We use municipal tap water with good results. If you are unsure about the quality of your tap water, it is best to use rain water or reverse osmosis (RO) water. Keep moist—do not let it go dry for long period of time. Excellent for growing in an orchid cabinet or terrarium. Very rewarding species.
