Plelis Arawana

(Acronia grandiflora x Elongatia restrepioides)


Plant ID: 01299


Additional Information: At the time this hybrid was named, the RHS recognized grandiflora as Pleurothallis grandiflora and restrepioides as Stelis restrepioides. The Icones Pleurothallidinarum "green books" recognize them as Acronia grandiflora and Elongatia restrepioides. To keep this website in line with the Icones upon which it is based, we have used the latter.

With A. grandiflora being single flowered and E. restrepioides being multifloral, the result has bee two-flowered for the most part. The plant habit takes after E. restrepioides. The color of this clone is a little washed out.
