General Information and Care: Pleurothallis (Specklinia) costaricensis is one of the first orchids that we added to our collection from this Genus. It is one of the easier growing species from this Genus and seems to tolerate a wide array of conditions, including terrarium type conditions. This species has small leaves, about 1-2” in length and very narrow. This plant tends to have a trailing habit making it a great choice for backgrounds. Typically this Pleurothallis will bloom several times a year with bright yellow flowers that are quite eye catching in a terrarium. It is definitely best to grow this species epiphytically, though it should be mounted with a small bit of long fiber New Zealand sphagnum moss.

5 of 5 Love it March 29, 2020
Reviewer: John Kelly from Sandy Spring, MD United States  
This plant is awesome! There were enough cuttings in the bag that I was able to split it up into 4 different spots on the background in my viv. The leaves looks quite similar to the pleurothallis grobyi.

It was a little bit difficult to plant because there isn't really a base on the plants, but I basically just wrapped the bottom in sphaghnum moss and put them in between two tooth picks in the background.

Within 1.5 weeks, 2 of the stalks have already flowered and the others are well on their way. Definitely recommend this.
