Acianthera bragae

Acianthera bragae, also known as Pleurothallis sarracenia, is a tiny creeping species with terete (pencil-like) leaves.  The leaves are 3cm long and grow in a row on a creeping stem.  The 2cm flowers usually comes in pairs with the flowers facing each other, but occasionally as one.  The species is from Brazil.  I grow it mounted and with cool temperatures.
