Platystele misasiana is a mini miniature orchid species that’s endemic to Colombia. In the wild, Platystele misasiana can be found in forests at around 200m above sea level. These orchids grow in Colombia’s cloud forests, where they enjoy cool, moist, and shady growing conditions.
This is an epiphytic orchid species with a naturally compact and bushy form. I often think of Platystele misasiana as being an orchid with a graceful air and poise, as the plants grow and hold themselves so elegantly.
