    Alex's post inspired me to wander out to the greenhouse this morning. We had a fairly mild Michigan summer and the Lepanthes have responded with new fall growth and a few flowers.

    Very nice!!! Love that niesseniae!!! Really pretty species. Also cool to see a Lepanthes ovalis!!! That was the very first species of Lepanthes that was ever discovered and it was originally recognized as being part of Epidendrum in 1788.
