General Information and Care: Pleurothallis dressleri is one of the smallest orchid species that Glass Box Tropicals offers. The leaves on this species typically are only about .5cm in diameter. Even though it is very small, it has stunning leaves that are green with white reticulation. Typically this species is found growing epiphytically on moss covered branches. Thus it prefers to be mounted in an area that is always moist to almost wet. In our experience it also seems to prefer medium to bright light to grow best.

Stunning little orchid. Arrived quickly, was carefully packaged, and was in excellent condition. It lost a few leaves during acclimation which I expected, but is already putting out some new growth.
