General Information and Care: Platystele umbellata is a spectacular miniature orchid species for a terrarium. This species as with several of the others in this genus stays very small, with leaves measuring 2” or less in length. Thus making it very easy to fit into a hardscape as a nice accent plant. The flowers on this species unlike the others however are on a very congested, umbellate pendule. This almost gives the appearance of a small ball of flowers on the end of the pendule. The flowers themselves are all dark red to maroon really making them stand out in a tank even though they are only 2-3mm in diameter each.
