The most easily available treatment is any pesticide that contains the chemical Bifenthrin.

Hello again all,

This may well be old news but I've just done some searching for a pesticide with the chemical Paul mentions above to treat for brevipalpus and it's in rose clear3 which is available from Wilkinsons for those of you who may not get chance to get to a garden center for a while. I'm sure it is also available a Garden Centers but will hopefully save you some time when looking.

I only grow two pleiones, so thought I'd post their photos.

Hello,

I am new in the forum here, at me they also start to flourish.

Pl. forrestii




Unfortunately, I have lost 80% of my forrestii through mites.

Hi Ivo,

Very nice pic !
And sorry for your dead ones - I wasn't actually aware that mites could kill pleiones, I thought they'd just weaken them. Could you comment on this and maybe tell me how one can see they are there ?
These beasts are something I'm afraid of....brrr.....

Best regards from Munich !

I know Paul will know how cold can Pleiones go?

My chin is still very sore from all this drooling and I have had to talk to myself, very severely, I just don't have the room to grow Pleiones. :(

Friends, I have grown this little orchid on my kitchen window sill for a few years now: I cannot remember its name  :-[ I will sneak its photo here, among the pleiones..... which look like giants in comparison.... this little flower is about 2cms across and 2ms to p to bottom. Flower spike is about 7cms from first flower to tip bud. Leaves are maximum of 16 cms long, curved and with a fold along the midrib.
