Polystachya pubescens is a small, epiphytic orchid native to South Africa. The small, pyriform pseudobulbs will reach about 4 inches (10 cm) tall bearing 3-4 leaves of unequal length. It is very easy to grow, I have it in bark mix. I water it often when in growth but keep it fairly dry in the winter.

Beautiful. They are getting rather scarce, as it is one of the species that is used as 'muti' (african medicines) by local witchdoctors.
