IN December of last year (1886), in the Orchid-house at Kew, a specimen of Pleurothallis ornatus1 flowered. Not only is this the first time that it has done so at Kew, but I am informed by Mr. Watson, of the Royal Gardens, who drew my attention to it, that hitherto P. ornatus has not been known to flower in captivity.
