Eurystyles species Fortuna

I’m starting to like less flashy, but interesting genera much more. This small epiphytic orchid is a perfect example. It was found at about 900 meters. With casual observation, they did seem to favor growing on the trunks of trees, as opposed to the smaller branches. I have tried growing related species from Ecuador with no success. Seeing these in situ has renewed my interest and has given me a little more understanding of how they are growing. I will have to buy a few more and hope for a better outcome.
