Pleurothallis tuerkheimii

Pleurothallis tuerkheimii is a medium sized plant with long pendulous flower spikes carrying deep red flowers.

The natural habitat of the species is damp forests and cloud forests from Mexico to Panama between 700m and 2400m altitude. This broad natural range supports our observation that this is an adaptable and accommodating plant to grow.

We grow this species in baskets and pots in our 'Cloud Forest Glasshouse' minimum 12C and water well all year (every two days)

As you can see from the photos we have taken of our plants over the past ten years, the species flowers when small but grows into a fantastic specimen.
