    Wow-another beauty! You have some seriously select Lepanthes. We just have Lepanthes in the states. Big difference.

    Incredible! I don't usually prefer xanthic/albescent flowers but that is one seriously beautiful Lepanthes.

    with Lepanthes between 60 to 90 days, after 60 days inspect pod daily or every 2 days if you don't have any air movement :).

    JM, I have been trying. So far my only success seems to be on Lepanthes inca. I thought I had one on L nautilus, but either it didn't hold or it was my wishful thinking. My hat's off to you and your pollination skills.
