Pabstia, abbreviated as Pab. in horticultural trade, is a genus of epiphitical orchids.
Plants are found in the moist forest of Brazil.
Plants in this genus have four pollinas. The genus was separated for its pollinary appendages and horse shoe shaped lip.
Most of the plants in this genus are cool to warm growing and require moderate lighting. Potting media should not be allowed to dry out. Keep moist but not soggy. Water about every five to seven days. Plants should be potted in a well drain mix with medium fir bark with some perlite or in tree fern fibers.
The genus is named after Brazilian orchidologist Guido Pabst.
