Platystele species – Choco, Colombia.

June 4, 2013

I had a wonderful time in Colombia. Went there with some researchers from Sweden, Brazil, Bolivia, Colombia. We spent time in the Choco rainforest just north of Bahia Solano at Jardin Botanico del Pacifico. A wonderful place run by Sergio and his family. I can recommend this place to anyone that´s interested in seeing a lot of animals, orchids and other plants, nice scenery etc. One of the best places I have been to! After Choco we went up in the mountains north of Medellin. We stayed at Belmira and explored the hills there. And then we finished of in Jardin. So for some time to come I will publish pictures from this trip. Enjoy!

This small plant was found at around 200 meters in the dens rainforest east of Mecana beach, Choco. The whole plant is just 8 mm across. ID unknown.

    that is unbelievably small. And so much good form. If you didn’t put your finger behind it I would have thought it a lot bigger than it was. Thanks
