Acronia stricta

Acronia stricta or Pleurothallis stricta is one of the few Pleurothallis that I grow.  Because many of them are very large plants and because the flowers are often small in proportion to the plant, I've weeded most of them out of my collection, though more for lack of room than for lack of interest.  This is one of the few I still have.  The plant is about 15 cm tall with narrow leaves and the flower spikes are again that long with 2 cm flowers.  The flowers do not, however, last very long, though they bloom several at time in succession,
