Physothallis cyllindrica

This one likes a dribble of water once or twice a week, but isn’t too insistent on it.  I’d say light levels are moderate to high for windowsill conditions.  Like most other things you’d find in the pleuro section, it likes humidity.  The leaves are paddle-like, and thick.  It’s a seriously reliable bloomer for me.  It keikis off of old leaves, and every newly mature one spurts out a spike.  The spike blooms from the bottom up, in succession, but it’s rare to see more than 4-6 blooms per spike open at once.

It started out this year with four spikes, then five, then six, then seven.  Obviously, it’s happy right where I have it.
