Scaphocepalum sp. Ecuador
Pleurothallis allenii- got this one in bloom
Scaphocepalum ovulare cutting I forgot about in bloom
Your ovulare is quite interesting to me. If it wasn't in bloom I would swear it was not that plant. The one I have and others I have seen, probably from the same origin, all have leaves that are literally a fraction of that size. I'm fairly certain my FS in bloom plant could fit mounted on one leaf.
That sucks for me.. Personally the foliage on the plant is too large for me and I don't really like it. I wish mine were a fraction of that size
We can make that happen. They grow like gang busters. When mine gets ready to split, I will let you know. My brother has a division that he may not be partial to, as well. I'll keep you posted.
Do you also have rapax?
Yes rapax is a very good grower for me .
Platystele ovatilabia..absolutely terrible pic
I just went out and looked at my plant. I've had it about 13 and the tallest growth is a bit over 2.25". It is growing quite high up so it isn't for lack of light. Yours is much rounder leaves that the one I have, too, which I got in Ecuador. I guess I won't offer you a piece of mine.
The dodsonii is another great one for its foliage alone. Your first pic captured it quite well. I have seen a lot of variation in this too.
That's a great foliage size to me! I have a swertifolium hybrid and fimbripetalum which are both huge. If anyone is interested in trading a piece of ovulare for either of those I'd gladly give a nice hunk!
For some reason I thought it was a smaller species..oh well. I have such limited space I really have to be selective with what I keep, so it makes it tough sometimes, especially when I dont see the actual plant before ordering, and just go off of google pics.
Your requirements are much more limited than most of us so it is going to be harder. Sometimes you really have to dig for that information.
My friend Ron Parsons is doing a 2 volume book on miniatures with Mary Gerritsen. I'm not sure if it is at the printer yet, but it is close. He has been very careful that nothing in it is over 6" and there have been a number of times when he has come up and seen something that is considered a miniature only to find out that under greenhouse conditions it can grow taller. I know that Ron will have measurements for the plants as to the leaf height and width so you can get a better idea of the size of the plant. I have frequently gone out to the greenhouse to measure leaves late at night since he wants the maximum height. Sometimes you really have to dig for that information.
I was just looking back at some of the images and am wondering why Pleurothallis allenii is OK and Scaphosepalum ovulare isn't? Pl allenii is not a small plant.
I was just temporarily holding the allenii for a friend while he finished setting up his vivarium...I dont keep it anymore.
That makes sense.
Much better photos I think...P. Ovatilabia
Mike, what was the source of your P. dodsonii? So many that I have seen for sale have very few spots and I have seen some on Ebay that I don't think are even labelled correctly. Thanks.
And I cant take credit for next 2 as they came from Marni in bud but there they are anyway
Lepanthes telipogoniflora and Lepanthes tsubotae
