Plant of the Month - May, 2017
Erika Lorincz brought in a beautifully flowered Specklinia (Pleurothallis) grobyi that she had originally gotten as a division of one of John Kafka’s collected plants. It was mounted on a plaque and was grown in a windowsill. Erika made the plant part of a mini display by arranging it in a basket with a Leptotes bicolor and a Trichocentrum tigrinum ‘Andrew’s First Communion’ CCM/AOS. Very effective! Congratulations!
